It was not obvious which from the four males was shouting, due to the fact his facial area was obscured driving the law enforcement van's major steel mesh, but he continuously called out, "I am innocent! I am harmless!" because the van drove earlier a scrum of reporters.
The boys have been convicted Tuesday within the December gang rape of a 23-year-old lady on a going New Delhi bus, a brutal criminal offense that unleashed a wave of community anger over the treatment of Indian girls in addition to a long-unspoken epidemic of sexual violence. The sufferer died two weeks soon after the attack.
The four face possibly existence imprisonment or death by hanging. Phone calls to the adult men for being executed have developed significantly loud, with every person within the victim's parents to major political leaders demanding the men be sentenced to dying.
Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan said the attack stunned India's "collective conscience," noting the law enforcement report showed the lads pulled out a few of the victim's physique parts immediately after savagely penetrating her using an iron rod.
Judge Yogesh Khanna said he would hand down the sentences on Friday.
The four men sat in in the back of the tiny courtroom in T-shirts or short-sleeved polo shirts, unshackled and with policemen holding them from both sides. They appeared impassive, though it was not clear how much they understood of the proceedings. Most of the day's arguments were in English, a language that only one of the men, Vinay Sharma, is able to speak. They had no translator.
The defense lawyers have long proclaimed their clients' innocence, while sometimes indicating some of the men may have been on the bus. They insist that any confessions were coerced by police torture.
On Wednesday, they called for the judge to avoid the death penalty.
"If they have committed a mistake, and the court accepted that they committed a mistake, then they should be given a chance to reform," lawyer A.P. Singh, who has worked with all the defendants at various times, said outside the courthouse. "The accused are not habitual and professional criminals. They should be given one chance to reform themselves."
Vivek Sharma, a lawyer representing Pawan Gupta, a 19-year-old fruit vendor, asked for a sentence of life imprisonment, noting that Indian law calls for execution only in very exceptional cases.
Sharma said Wednesday the crime may have happened "on the spur of the moment" and urged leniency for his client because of his age and because he had to support his impoverished family. He said Gupta did not join in the rape or in violating the victim with the rod.
The family of the victim watched from one row in front of the prisoners, close enough to touch one another.
When the hearing ended, they again called for the men to be hanged.
"They finished our daughter," said the father, who cannot be named under Indian laws guarding his daughter's identity as a rape victim. "We want them finished."
An airport baggage handler who makes a little more than $200 a month, he and his wife had broken with the conservative rural culture in which they had been raised, encouraging their daughter to study hard and even leave home to get a degree in physiotherapy. At the time of the attack, she was awaiting her exam results.
India's Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty should only be used in "the rarest of rare cases," though what defines those cases remains highly debated.
By most estimates, more than 100 people are sentenced to death in India in most years, but the vast majority of those cases are eventually commuted to life in prison.
India had an unofficial moratorium on capital punishment that lasted eight years, ending with the November 2012 execution of Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunmen in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Two months later, Mohammad Afzal Guru, convicted in a deadly 2001 attack on India's Parliament, was also hanged.
Indian media reports say about 400 prisoners are believed to be currently awaiting execution.
In addition to their confessions, the four convicted rapists were identified by the woman's male friend who was with her on the night of the attack. The two were coming home from a movie when the men tricked them into boarding a bus they were joy-riding. They quickly beat the friend into submission, held the woman down and took turns raping her. They also penetrated her with the rod, causing severe internal injuries that led to her death.
The defendants, like the victim, come from poor and ill-educated families. One, Mukesh Singh, occasionally drove the bus where the crime occurred and cleaned it. Another, Vinay Sharma, was a 20-year-old assistant at a gym and the only one of the attackers to graduate from high school. Akshay Thakur, 28, occasionally worked as a driver's helper on the bus.
With them on the bus were two other men. Police say Ram Singh, 33, hanged himself in prison, though his family insists he was murdered. He was the brother of Mukesh Singh. Another man - an 18-year-old who was a juvenile at the time of the attack and cannot be identified under Indian law - was convicted in August and will serve the maximum sentence he faced, three years in a reform home.
About two dozen protesters gathered Wednesday by the courthouse, calling for the four men to be executed and taunting defense lawyers.
When both sides couched the cancellation in diplomatic phrases, it marks an embarrassment for President Barack Obama along with a blow to his initiatives to enhance ties with the critical Latin American energy.
The visit experienced been scheduled for 23 Oct but was termed into problem soon after documents leaked by Snowden, a previous US intelligence technician, unveiled the extent of yankee spying on its Brazilian ally.
Obama has become attempting to defuse the row, most just lately throughout talks with Rousseff over the sidelines of this month's G20 summit, and he spoke together with her yet again on Monday by telephone.
But Brazil was unmoved, and on Tuesday Rousseff introduced an end into the speculation, confirming that her vacation was off.
"The two presidents chose to postpone the condition check out because the end result of this stop by should really not be conditioned on a concern which for Brazil has not been satisfactorily resolved," Rousseff's office stated.
Her statement reflected Brazil's anger over Snowden's disclosures that the NSA spied on her email communications and on the state-run energy giant Petrobras.
"The illegal interceptions of communications and data of citizens, companies and members of the Brazilian government represents a serious act which violates national sovereignty and is incompatible with democratic coexistence between friendly countries," Rousseff's statement said.
In Washington, White House spokesperson Jay Carney, put a brave face on the situation.
"It's because the relationship is so important and because it has so many facets that the president agrees with this decision they made together to postpone the visit," Carney said.
Insisting that another later visit could be organised, Carney added: "It should not be overshadowed by a bilateral issue no matter how important or challenging the issue may be".
The spying row stems from allegations made by Snowden, a former NSA contractor who fled the United States and revealed the scope of the NSA's activities to Brazil-based journalist Glenn Greenwald.
In July, the Brazilian daily Globo, citing documents provided by Snowden, who has been granted temporary asylum in Russia, reported that US agencies eavesdrop on Brazilians' phone calls and Internet communications.
The report said Washington maintained an intelligence base in Brasilia, part of a network of 16 such stations operated by the NSA around the world to intercept foreign satellite transmissions.
Brazilian Communications Minister Paulo Bernardo dismissed claims by US officials that the NSA was only collecting metadata - logs of phone numbers called and the duration of such calls - and not listening in on calls.
Washington, he said, is conducting a "much deeper surveillance".
Brazil demanded an investigation and a US promise to stop such spying.
Snowden, who first fled to Hong Kong before moving on to Russia, is wanted by the United States on espionage charges.
Rousseff is to address the UN General Assembly session in New York later this month and her aides said she will raise the spying issue.
Contract on hold
Brazil's first woman president visited Washington last year, returning a visit to Brazil by Obama the previous year.
Brazil is Latin America's economic powerhouse and Obama made it a priority to improve ties, which were often prickly under Rousseff's predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
As the cancelled visit shows, the Snowden row has damaged tied between the two trading giants of the Western Hemisphere.
A Brazilian government source said last week that the spying row may have brought negotiations on buying US warplanes to a halt.
The talks to buy 36 fighter jets at a cost of around $5bn have been going on for years, and got a nudge when US Vice President Joe Biden visited Brazil in May.
Vying for the lucrative Air Force contract are the US Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, the Rafale from France's Dassault the Gripen NG by Saab of Sweden.
The United States is currently Brazil's second biggest trading partner behind China.
Snowden's revelations about international US spying and snooping programs have also caused Obama acute embarrassment and in relations with other allies.
Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto complained to Obama over reports US spies had gone through his emails.
There have also been pointed questions on the NSA issue from the likes of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for whom the revelations caused discomfort during a re-election campaign.
