The court has also imposed fine of $1,541 on all five of the convicted. They have been pronounced guilty on counts of gang rape, kidnapping, violent robbery, wrongful confinement, criminal intimidation and common intention.
The conviction was largely based on the accounts of a security guard who was an eye witness to the incident. The security guard identified the accused in the court.
After registering the case, the victim returned to India in July 2015 to record her in-camera testimony before the trial court. She identified six accused in the court while she failed to identify three juveniles. The sixth person died in February this year.
