February 02, 2013 - 3:23 AM

NEW DELHI - Five men have pleaded not guilty after being formally indicted in a special court on 13 charges, including rape and murder, in the fatal gang rape of a woman in a New Delhi bus in December.

One of the men's lawyers says the men signed statements in the fast-track court Saturday saying they were innocent.

The lawyer cannot be identified under a gag order imposed by the court.

The court will begin hearing the evidence of witnesses on Tuesday.
