Mumbai: The trial in the TISS gangrape case is set to begin on August 11 in a Sessions court here.

Six persons, aged between 21 and 27, were arrested in April this year for allegedly gangraping a 23-year-old US national, who is a student of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

The police had in July filed a charge sheet against the accused before the Kurla metropolitan magistrate.

The magistrate today referred the trial in the case to the Sewree sessions court.

The magistrate court cannot conduct the trial as the charges levelled against the accused are punishable with more than three years imprisonment.

All the six accused -- Dev Colabawala, Jaskaran Singh, Vinamra Soni, Kundanraj Borgonain, Anish Borkhatki and Harshawardhan Yadav -- will be produced before the Sewree sessions court on August 11.

According to the police, the six and the girl had partied at a club in suburban Deonar where the accused allegedly got the victim drunk.

After that the accused took her to a flat in suburban Andheri and raped her.
