Delhi gangrape

"Disturbed" over the gang-rape, the Delhi High Court assured women lawyers that it was looking into the "brazen" incident following a plea for a court-monitored probe.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit asked Chief Justice of Delhi High Court Justice Darmar Murugesan to immediately make functional five Special Fast Track Courts to try cases of assult on women, as approved by the Delhi government.

The Chief Minister, in a letter to the CJ, urged him to take "urgent" action in making the fast track courts functional.

While Ram Singh, Sharma and Gupta were arrested from the capital, Mukesh was nabbed from Rajasthan and had been brought to the capital, the Police Commissioner said, terming the incident as "most reprehensible".

The girl, who had come to Delhi from Dehradun for her internship, and her friend had boarded the bus at Munirka to go to Dwarka.

While Neeraj Kumar said two men were still absconding in connection with the incident, police later in court said three persons were absconding and they need to send teams to Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan to nab them.

"Ram Singh, who was not driving the vehicle that night, shouted that the bus was going to Dwarka and asked the couple to get into it. Once the bus started moving, they started misbehaving with the girl. Her male friend who protested and tried to save the girl was severely beaten up. The girl also tried hard to protect him," Kumar said.

But she was raped allegedly by Singh and other occupants of the vehicle which was being driven by Mukesh at the time of the incident. The duo were then brutally assaulted and dumped near Mahipalpur flyover, he said.

Kumar said the Delhi Police will seek a fast-track trial in this case on a day-to-day basis so that the accused given justice as soon as possible.
