India rape accused arrive at Delhi court for hearing

Five men accused of the abduction, gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old student in Delhi are in court for a preliminary hearing in a case that has shocked India.

The case is expected to be transferred to a new fast-track court for trial.

The hearing comes as four Indian policemen have been suspended over the handling of another suspected rape and murder case near Delhi.
