Two to plead not guilty in Delhi gang-rape case: lawyer

Two of the five men accused of gang-raping and murdering a 23-year-old woman on a moving bus in New Delhi last month will plead not guilty to all charges. 

This according to their lawyer, who said nothing has been proven.

Mukesh Singh, who is the brother of the bus driver Ram Singh, and Thakur are two of the five men charged with rape and murder over the 16th of December attack on the young student, which has fuelled fierce protests across India. 

A sixth accused, who is 17, will be tried in a separate court for juveniles.

Police earlier told reporters they have identified bloodstains linking the men to the attack but the advocate said he would challenge police over their handling of evidence, while refusing to give details.

The next hearing, to be held behind closed doors, has been scheduled for Thursday when a magistrate is expected to transfer the case for trial in a special fast-track court.
