The court reserved its judgements on the convicts who are accused of raping a physiotherapy intern in a moving bus on December 16, 2012 and threw her out later. She was taken into government custody and sent to a hospital in Singapore, where she succumbed to her injuries.

The top court challenged the order of the lower court which awarded the convicts death sentence. The apex court accepted amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran’s submissions on February 3, that there have been violation of procedure in the sentencing of death to four convicts. On December 3, amicus curiae Sanjay Hegde raised questions over the evidence produced by the prosecution in the gang-rape case. He is questions put a question on the merit of evidence. According to Hegde some evidence also prove Mukesh, one of the convicts was not with the prime culprit Ram Singh when the offence was committed, since their mobile locations were found to be different on that night.
