When the majority of the nation was celebrating the sentencing of the four accused in the brutal gang rape and murder of a young physiotherapist in Delhi, one of the defense lawyers of the accused, in
Delhi gang rape

I may have walked those streets of Delhi alone where the 23-year old girl was gang-raped while the bus was moving around the city.
