If found guilty, accused Mukesh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur might be sentenced to death.
Meanwhile, parents of the girl Jyoti Sharma, known as Delhi Braveheart, said they want death for all the accused.
"Nothing short of a death sentence for all the accused will satisfy us. Only that can bring peace to our minds and to the whole country," the victim's father told HT.
The case against accused Ram Singh was dropped after he was found dead, hanging in his cell in Tihar Jail in March.
The youngest accused in the Delhi gangrape on Aug 31 was convicted of rape and murder and sentenced to three years, in the first verdict in the case.
The Juvenile Justice Board, presided over by Principal Magistrate Geetanjali Goel, sent him to three years at a reform centre for his role in the fatal gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student in New Delhi last December.
As the verdict of three years' term in a special home was pronounced, the parents of the victim said they were heart broken by the token punishment and would appeal in higher courts.
"It is a crime to be born a girl in this country," said the father of the girl while her mother said they felt let down by the law. "It is like letting him go," she said.
"Only three years? This is unacceptable. They may as well acquit him now," she said.
The seemingly "light" verdict also triggered anger and demonstrations on several corners. A a number of started shouting slogans outside the juvenile board and sought death penalty for the accused.
On Dec 16, 2012, six people gangraped and brutalised the 23-year-old Delhi Braveheart or Nirbhaya with an iron rod on a moving bus in New Delhi. The victim succumbed to her injuries at a Singapore hospital on Dec 29.
The incident triggered nationwide outrage against rising cases of crime against women in India with people pouring into the streets of New Delhi for days and demanding a change of law and strict punishment of the accused.
