A court in the Indian capital, Delhi, will begin hearing evidence from witnesses in the case of the gang rape and murder of a female student.

Five men charged with the rape and murder of the 23-year-old physiotherapy student in December have pleaded not guilty, and if convicted could face the death penalty.

A sixth suspect will be tried by a juvenile court.
