Delhi gang rape teenager convicted

A teenager is found guilty of the rape and murder of a student in Delhi last year and receives a three-year term in a reform facility.

A juvenile court in India has convicted a teenager for the rape and murder of a student on a bus in Delhi last December.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been sentenced to three years in a reform facility, the maximum term possible for a juvenile.

It's the first verdict in the case which sparked outrage across India and a debate about the treatment of women. Four other men are being tried separately.
