The four were convicted on charges of raping and assaulting a 23-year-old paramedical student inside a bus. Later, she was thrown out of the bus at an isolated place. The victim succumbed to her injuries on December 29, 2012, at a hospital in Singapore.

A fifth accused committed suicide in prison while a sixth, a juvenile, has been released after serving his probation period in a remand home.
