Delhi Ganrape accused driver Ram Singh hangs himself
Delhi– In a huge security lapse, Ram Singh, one of the men accused in the gang-rape of a medical student in a moving bus in Delhi last December, has allegedly committed suicide at Tihar Jail, where he was lodged. He reportedly used his own clothes to hang himself. Tihar Jail officials said Ram Singh hanged himself in Jail Number 3, at around 5 this morning. His body has been taken to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital in the capital.
“knew he was going to die anyway because we had and still have such a strong case against him .I’m not very thrilled with the news that he killed himself because I wanted him to be hanged publicly. Him dying on his own terms seems unfair. But, oh well, one is down. Hopefully the rest will wait for their death sentence”, the physiotherapist’s 20-year-old brother told Reuters.
The trial of the five adult men began in a special fast-track court last month while the juvenile’s trial began last week. Ram Singh’s brother Mukesh Singh, gym assistant Vinay Sharma, bus cleaner Akshay Kumar Singh and fruit vendor Pawan Kumar are the other men on trial.Reuters/NDTV
