Indian court upholds death for 3 convicts for 2012 Delhi gang rape

NEW DELHI, July 9 (Reuters) - India’s Supreme Court on Monday upheld the death penalty for three men convicted in the gruesome gang rape and murder of a young woman in New Delhi in 2012.

A three-member bench of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra dismissed a petition filed by the men to review a 2017 order by the top court, which had confirmed the death penalty given to them by the Delhi High Court.
