Delhi gangrape: 6th accused sent to 12-day judicial custody

Akshay Singh alias Thakur, who was the last one to be arrested in the case, was produced before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Lokesh Kumar Sharma after expiry of his day-long police custody.

"He (Akshay) is remanded to judicial custody. Let he be produced on January 9," the court said after the police did not seek his further custody.

Akshay had been remanded in police custody yesterday for a day to recover the remaining case property and clothes which he and other arrested five co-accused were wearing while allegedly gangraping and brutally assaulting the victim in a moving bus here on the fateful night.

After the day-long custody, the police did not seek his further remand as they recovered the articles, which had not been recovered earlier.

The investigating officer in the case told the court that they have seized the clothes of the accused worn on the night of incident and also the mobile of the girl and ATM card of her male friend and other valuables at the instance of accused Akshay.

It also said the victim's male friend, a 28-year-old software engineer had identified the valuables, which were robbed from them after the incident.

The police told the court that the boy had even identified the ring, which his female friend was wearing on that night. (More)
