In August, a teenager was sentenced for three years for his part in the gang rape and murder of a young woman on a bus in Delhi, last December.
The defendant - who cannot be named for legal reasons - was 17 at the time of the attack and was tried as a minor in a juvenile court.
Today, four men have received death sentences for the same attacks. A fifth man who had been facing trial was found dead in his cell in March.
