A 17-year-old boy has pleaded not guilty to charges that he took part in the gang rape and murder of a trainee physiotherapist in Delhi.
The boy was charged in a juvenile court with rape, murder, kidnapping and other crimes and must stand trial on 6 March. If convicted, he faces a maximum of three years in a reform facility.
Five other men have gone on trial at a specially convened fast-track court and face the death penalty. Police say that on 16 December, the youth and five men lured the 23-year-old woman and her male friend on to a bus where they raped and beat her. She later died from internal injuries.
