Two days after the death of the 23-year-old gangrape victim, Delhi Police today said it has finalised around 1,000-page charge sheet in connection with the incident and plans to submit it in court on Thursday.

A senior police official said the charge sheet, which is being vetted by legal experts, has cited 30 witnesses in connection with the December 16 incident in which the physiotherapy student was gangraped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus in south Delhi. The victim died in a Singapore hospital on Saturday morning.

Investigators said they will seek death penalty for the accused in the case.

Six persons, including a 17-year-old boy, was apprehended in connection with the incident, which evoked widespread outrage and anger and triggered violent protests in India Gate and Raisina Hill.

The charge sheet, to be filed in the Saket court, will detail the role of five men while mentioning that a separate report would be sent to Juvenile Justice Board for the trial of the minor boy allegedly involved in the case, the official said.

The charge sheet gives details about the sequence of events, the treatment, shifting of the patient to a Singapore hospital as well as her death, the official said.

Police have slapped rape, murder and other charges against the accused.

People fail to understand the logic of 1000 pages of Charge Sheet.It appears a compilation of two or three books. Despite these huge Charge sheets Bails are granted to the convicts in no time and conviction hardly takes place in such cases.

1000 pages charge sheet? This is an open and shut case and I can understand 200-300 pages charge sheet with statements from witnesses. But 1000 pages? are they writing thesis? No wonder the judge adjourns since he needs to spend a good week to read the entire thing.

Replicating such super fast and efficient (I presume) investigation all over is a little ‘secrete’ of our future prosperity.
