(Newser) – The latest in the India gang-rape case: A public prosecutor said yesterday that forensic evidence links the accused to the monstrous rape of a 23-year-old woman on a Delhi bus, the Guardian reports. In a pretrial hearing, the prosecutor told a judge that the five accused men tried burning their clothes to destroy evidence—but traces of the victim's blood was found on the burnt remains. Belongings stolen from the victim were also found on the accused, the BBC reports The men, aged 19 to 35, are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow for the first time.

STOP the rapes. --- Turn all the rapists in India over to the angry mobs, to do justice for the victims, and you'll cut the rapes in India down to minuscule numbers. --- YES you would. -------- REALLY

I hope Justice will wear glasses. Will that young woman receive justice or will it go the way of help she did not get after the rape. I say this to India, be careful, the whole world is watching you. Prove to us that in this matter you will show yourself just and admirable, I shudder to call them men. I don't even know whether animals rape. If we are at the top of the evolutionary ladder, (may be the ladder is upside down) then we are in big trouble. Do you suppose our fossils will inspire reverence as we have for the dinosaurs? Oh man what has happened to you? Sex with an unwilling woman? Do you think if women could rape, we will continue to have rape victims? I doubt it..
