The court said all the accused are liable for gang-raping the victim.
"If the accused person had participated in the incident then the question as to who committed rape or who could not complete the act of rape become irrelevant for convicting the accused in gang rape," it said declining to accept Mukesh's argument.
"Hence, all the accused in pursuance of the conspiracy committed gang rape with the victim and thus convicted under section 376 (2) (g) (gang-rape) of the IPC," it added.
Mukesh had claimed he was driving the bus in which the victim and her friend were picked up on the night of 16 Dec and denied raping the victim, attacking her friend or robbing them of their belongings.
