Police badly beat the five suspects arrested in the brutal gang rape and killing of a young woman on a New Delhi bus, the lawyer for one of the men said Thursday, accusing authorities of tampering with evidence in the case that has transfixed India.
Mr. Sharma, who has made a series of inflammatory and often-contradictory statements in the past two days, at one point Thursday said the woman's male companion, who boarded the bus with her after they saw a movie together, was "responsible for the whole thing."
Mr. Sharma said police have beaten the men and placed other prisoners into the suspects' cells to threaten them with knives, adding "you can't believe the reality of Indian prisons."
