    NEW DELHI: Delhi gang-rape prime accused Ram Singh on Monday committed suicide by hanging himself in Tihar Jail.

    The incident came to light around 5am. Ram Singh was found hanging inside jail number 3. He was rushed to the jail hospital but declared dead on arrival. The body was then sent for postmortem at Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) hospital.

    Ram Singh was to be produced in Saket court today. The gang-rape accused were woken up by 5-5.30am everyday and taken to Saket court on their hearing date in a bus and were kept in a lockup there. The incident came to fore when the guard spotted him this morning.

    He was apparently disturbed by the recent hanging of Afzal Guru, a source said. A metropolitan magistrate will inquire into the incident, the source added.

    However, the incident has raised several questions on the safety of inmates inside the high-security jail.

    The manner in which the incident has unfolded has brought forward conspiracy theories. It was unlikely for the gang-rape accused to succeed in his suicide bid using his clothes and without any intervention.

    Ram Singh, one of the six accused in the Delhi gang-rape case, was the driver of the bus in which the 23-year-old paramedical student was raped. The victim died in a Singapore hospital December 29.

    Ram Singh was arrested along with his brother and four others, including a minor, hours after the crime. He and his co-accused have also faced fellow inmates' ire after being lodged into Tihar Central Jail.

    Ram Singh's brother Mukesh has been informed about the incident.

    Tihar Jail authorities had earlier said that all the five accused in the case were under 'suicide watch' as they had stopped talking and interacting amongst themselves.

    Ram Singh's counsel had filed a petition in the Supreme Court asking the case to be shifted out side Delhi as his client is apprehensive about a fair trial.

    "He knew he was going to die anyway because we had and still have such a strong case against him," the victim's 20-year-old brother said.

    "I'm not very thrilled with the news that he killed himself because I wanted him to be hanged ... publicly. Him dying on his own terms seems unfair. But, oh well, one is down. Hopefully the rest will wait for their death sentence,"he added.

    The trial of the five adult men began in a special fast-track court last month while the juvenile's trial began last week. Ram Singh's brother Mukesh Singh, gym assistant Vinay Sharma, bus cleaner Akshay Kumar Singh and fruit vendor Pawan Kumar are the other men on trial.

    Police allege the six attacked the woman and her male companion on the bus as the couple returned home after watching a movie on December 16. The woman was repeatedly raped and tortured with a metal bar. The couple were also severely beaten before being thrown onto a road.

    Singh was a bus driver, despite an accident in 2009 that fractured his right arm so badly that doctors had to insert a rod to support it. He appeared on a reality television show in a compensation dispute with a bus owner, who in turn accused Singh of "drunken, negligent and rash driving".

    In the show, the moustachioed, slightly-built man was seen walking stiffly and holding his right arm at an awkward angle.

    Singh's neighbours in the south Delhi slum where he lived described him as a heavy drinker with a temper. One young woman said he used to get embroiled in violent rows and a relative recalled a physical altercation with her husband.

    This just seems all really upsetting. Amongst all the hype of this scandal are people losing their own humanity? The rape victim's brother seems understandably ice-cold towards Ram Singh's death, I know my opinion doesn't matter one bit on this (none of ours really do), but it's a little sad to see that this has made the family so bitter in themselves.

    Anyways, this really is a cluster of a situation. Let's not forget Ram Singh had a family too..

    Reasons of rape:

    1. Sexual repression.

    2. Sexual liberation.

    3. Patriarchal behaviour.

    4. Matriarchal behaviour.

    5. Right as a married spouse.

    6. Not in the mood.

    7. In the mood.

    8. Lack of respect.

    9. Power grab.

    One can go on and on.

    But we all know that Rape IS Wrong and Uncalled For.

    In the Delhi gang rape case the prime accused Ram singh was Psycho.Most probably 2-3 friends were also like that.In India there is no concept of mental health and unless you are fully mad you can roam in society freely and become danger for yourself and others.

    Unfortunately The Delhi gang rape was used to promote the agenda from various sections of society rather than finding the actual reasons

    As long these type of psychoes roam freely without any medical help they will always become danger for people and will commit rape or murder

    What was unfortunate in using the Delhi rape case "to promote the agenda"?

    What agenda was promoted by various sections of society?

    What various sections of society were promoting an agenda?

    What actual reasons are you talking about?

    What type of psychos roam freely? Is there only one type of psycho?

    I don't understand how O.K is it to promote the agenda o the suffering and death of an innocent



    Liberals used rape to protest against Indian culture.They all were saying that as if Indian culture is solely responsible for rapes.Somebody should ask them if Indian culture is responsible for rapes then how come Sweden and Norway have such high incidents of rapes

    Religious leaders, Indian culture preservers used the rape to tell that evil western culture is responsible for rapes. Somebody should tell them that rapes used to happen in ancient India

    Bollywood stars were coming in media all were pretending to be on forefront of women rights when the fact is bollywood songs are mostly used in eve teasing incidents.






    Transport mafia , corruption and psychoes were some of actual reasons.I don't know how many type of psychoes are their but they roam freely in society without taking any treatment and become menace for others.
