Indian Media Will be Able to Cover Gang Rape Trial

NEW DELHI -- A court ruled Friday that Indian media will now be allowed to cover the trial of four men accused in the gang rape and fatal beating of a woman on a New Delhi bus in December, a defense lawyer in the case said.

Journalists had been barred by a court order from entering the courtroom or reporting details of the trial, which is already under way in a special fast-track court in the capital.

But the Delhi High Court lifted the gag order Friday, allowing local media to cover one of the most high-profile trials in the country, according to defense lawyer V.K. Anand.
