Top India court confirms four men to hang for bus rape and murderIndia’s Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed pleas for a review of the death sentence handed down to four men in the rape and murder of a young woman on a New Delhi bus, leaving an appeal to the president as their only possible recourse. The 2012 attack on the 23-year old physiotherapy student on the moving bus shocked India and led to tough new laws against sexual violence, including the death penalty for rape in some cases. The court said that there were no grounds to review its decision upholding the death sentence for the four men, all from working class neighborhood in the Indian capital.
