India Gang Rape Suspects in Court

Five of six men charged in the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman in New Delhi have been produced in court in the Indian capital. The country's chief justice also wants more fast track courts to ensure quick justice for crimes against women.

There was tight security in the New Delhi court where the five accused men were produced before a magistrate Monday. Proceedings were closed to the media and the public following chaotic scenes in court. The magistrate said that the trial will remain closed due to the sensitivity of the case.
