A Delhi court on 6 June convicted five of the nine accused in the case of raping a Danish woman in the national capital.

As reported in the Indian Express, arguments on the quantum of punishment will be heard on 9 June.

Nine men, including three juveniles, are accused of raping the 52-year-old Danish woman in central Delhi.

Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar had earlier on 26 May fixed the matter for judgement after he concluded hearing final arguments of both the Delhi Police and the defence counsel.

While the prosecution submitted that all evidence nails the accused, the defence counsel claimed that his clients were innocent.

Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal were accused of robbing and raping the Danish woman at knife-point near New Delhi railway station in January 2014 after she sought directions to her hotel in Paharganj area.

Shyam Lal died in February in Delhi's Tihar Jail here and proceedings against him in the case were abated.

The three minors are facing proceedings before the Juvenile Justice Board in connection with the case.
