Indian Courts Ban Media Coverage of Gang Rape Trial

Arguments started in the court room immediately, with lawyers trying to persuade other lawyers not to represent the defendants


One of India's most hotly debated criminal cases of recent memory went to trial Monday in a Delhi court, but TV cameras and other media won't get to cover it.

The six suspects – who are accused of gang-raping and assaulting a young woman in a moving bus on Dec. 16 leading to the victim's eventual death – were brought to court under heavy police security.
