Five Indian men were formally charged in court on Jan. 3 with the gang rape and murder of the female physiotherapy student. Murder carries the death penalty in India. A sixth accused is under 18 and is due to be tried separately in a juvenile court.
The deadly gang rape of a 23-year-old woman in India on Dec. 16 set off street protests and vigils, and led to the arrests of five men and one teenager.
