Their target was not Jyoti Singh Singh Pandey specifically. (Damini,Nirbhaya).
Just any woman will do.
From the interview of the Clinical psychologist it is clear that they were under the influence of Alcohol.
This is how the incident unfolded .
“The accused “decided ahead of time” they would look for a woman and “intended to kill her”, the police report claims.
The gang boarded a bus that the alleged gang leader, Ram Singh, drove by day to ferry children to school and went out in search of a victim. They found the student accompanied by a male friend who were looking for transport home after watching the movie “Life of Pi” at a South Delhi shopping mall, according to the report submitted to the court.
Police arrested Singh the next day after tracing the bus using security camera footage from a hotel. He was still wearing a T-shirt stained with the victim’s blood and “on sustained interrogation” confessed and led the police to his accomplices, the police report said.
The other accused are Singh’s brother Mukesh, Akshay Kumar Singh, alias Thakur, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma, all of whom are expected to plead not guilty when the trial begins. Mukesh Singh claims he was tortured while in police custody, his lawyer said on Thursday.
A sixth member of the gang, a teenager, is being processed as a juvenile, has not so far been charged and will be tried separately. Police have said they are conducting bone tests to determine his age as they suspect he may be over 18 years old.
After being caught by police, Ram Singh produced two bloodied iron rods from the bus, which had been used to beat the victim and her friend, and were inserted into her body, causing massive organ damage, the report claims.
According to the police dossier, the accused turned the lights out and took turns driving the bus, while two men held the woman down and another raped her. She suffered bite marks on several parts of her body, but also fought back and managed to bite her attackers. Their injuries are part of the case against them, the police report said.
After removing part of the victim’s intestines and throwing both her and her companion from the moving vehicle, they then tried to drive the bus over her. But her companion pulled her away, the report said.
They were left “badly injured and bleeding” on a flyover in south Delhi and were found naked by a highway worker who gave the man a shirt and called the police.
The victim, whom Reuters has opted not to name because Indian law generally prohibits doing so, died in a Singapore hospital of infection and “multiple organ failure” two weeks after the crime.
After the attack, Ram Singh tried to wipe the bus clean with the victims’ clothes, then made a fire to burn the clothes and other incriminating evidence, the report alleges. Witnesses from the neighbourhood he lived in came to the fire to warm themselves, the report said.
The dossier purports to rely on some 80 witnesses, along with DNA matches, mobile telephone tower records, video evidence, stolen goods belonging to the victims in possession of the accused, the bloodied clothes of the suspects, and the weapons used in the attack.
The prosecution will seek the death sentence for murder.
Police sources say the sixth accused in the Delhi gang-rape case – a 17-year-old who has been held at a juvenile home since his arrest – was the one who called out to the victim and her friend on that fateful night on December 16.
He allegedly told them the bus could take them to their destination. And once they boarded the bus he made lewd remarks about the girl. A NDTV report quoted police sources as saying the teenager allegedly raped her twice, once while she was unconscious….
