Clean Media Correspondent

New Delhi, Jan 02 (CMC) Chief Justice Altamas Kabir on Wednesday inaugurated a fast-track court here to hear the gang-rape and murder case of the 23-year-old medical student. 

Speaking on the occasion, CJI Kabir said, “It's good to know that after the December 16 tragic incident, people have started raising their voice on crime against women.” 

The fast-track court in Saket is among the four that are being set up to handle all cases related to crimes against women. The other fast-track courts will function at Dwarka, Rohini and Tis Hazari. All these courts will start functioning from tomorrow onwards. 

The girl was gang-raped and brutally assaulted with an iron rod on December 16 in a moving bus in South Delhi by six men. Despite the efforts put in by a big team of doctors, she died on Saturday in a Singapore hospital. 

All the six accused are under arrest and would be tried for murder among other charges. The Delhi Police is said to have prepared a 1000-page chargesheet and would urge the court to take the case as rarest of rare and award death penalty to the accused. 

The chargesheet is expected to be submitted in the magistrate court in Saket tomorrow before being moved to the fast-track court.
