Indian teen given three years for role in gang rape

A TEENAGER has been given three years in a reform facility for his role in a horrific gang rape of a woman on a Delhi bus last year.

BBC News reported the teenager was convicted on charges of rape and murder over the crime, committed when he was aged 17.

The 18-year-old, who cannot be named, was given the maximum term possible for a juvenile.

All of those allegedly involved in the crime have denied the charges.

The rape of the 23-year-old woman in December caused uproar across India and made headlines worldwide.
