New Delhi: Akshay Thakur, one of the six accused in the infamous gang-rape of a 23-year-old paramedical student will undergo a Test Identification Parade (TIP) on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Mukesh, the brother of co-accused Ram Singh, who was allegedly driving the bus during the crime, was identified during a test identification parade (TIP).
Mukesh was remanded in 12 days judicial custody by a Delhi Metropolitan Magistrate Pawan Kumar.
He was then sent to Tihar Jail till January 6 following the court’s order.
Akshay Thakur, who had been arrested from Aurangabad district in Bihar, is presently in judicial custody and will undergo the TIP in Tihar jail today.
Besides Mukesh, other four arrested in the case are Ram Singh, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Akshay Thakur.
However, the proceedings relating to the sixth accused are being undertaken separately before the Juvenile Justice Board as he is a minor.
Both the victims, a 23-year-old paramedical student and her male friend, who had boarded the chartered bus with tinted glass windows from Munirka here to Palam around 9.45pm last Sunday night, were assaulted with an iron rod by the men after the two resisted before they were dumped on the road side near Mahipalpur flyover, police said.
