A court in India court convicted four men over the gang-rape of a photographer on assignment in the city of Mumbai last year.
The court found the men guilty of raping the 22-year-old in August last year at an abandoned mill compound, where she had gone to take photos with a male colleague, close to an upscale area of the financial city.
Mohammed Salim Ansari, Siraj Rehmat Khan, Vijay Mohan Jadhav and Mohammed Kasim Hafeez Shaikh, also known as Kasim Bangali, aged between 18 to 27 at the time of their arrest, were in the south Mumbai court to hear the verdict.
The Mumbai court is expected to sentence the men tomorrow, said Maharashtra state Home Minister R.R. Patil. The four face a minimum of 20 years in prison, and could receive life sentences, said Prosecutor Ujjawal Nikkam.—AFP
