NEW DELHI (AP) — Four men sentenced to death for raping and murdering a young woman on a moving bus have appeared at a New Delhi court where judges are reviewing the penalty.
The attack last December sparked public debate and fury over chronic sexual violence faced by women in India.
The men walked to the High Court under police escort Tuesday. Three uncovered their faces in public for the first time since the crime, while one wore a handkerchief tied over his nose and mouth.
The High Court could take months to hear arguments, review evidence and decide whether to confirm the execution orders, as is required for all death penalty cases in India.
The men's lawyers say they will appeal the convictions issued earlier this month.
