A Delhi court on Monday convicted five of the nine accused of raping a Danish woman in the national capital. The arguments on quantum of punishment will be held on June 9.

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

Additional sessions judge Ramesh Kumar had on May 26 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 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 inside Tihar jail and proceedings against him in the case were abated.
