New Delhi, 04 January (

The Delhi Police filed charge-sheet against five of the six accused in the brutal gang-rape of a young girl in the metropolitan magistrate's court in Saket on Thursday.

The five accused have been charged with murder, attempt to murder, gang rape, kidnapping, robbery and destruction of evidence.

The sixth accused, who is suspected to be a juvenile, will be charged separately. His bone density are being analyzed now to ascertain if the sixth accused is a juvenile or an adult.

According to reports, the chargesheet says that DNA reports have confirmed that all the six accused were involved in the horrific crime in which the 23-year-old girl lost her life.

Earlier, Chief Justice of India (CJI) Altamas Kabir inaugurated a fast-track court at Saket court complex in Delhi last evening. The gang rape and murder of a 23-year old physiotherapy student in Delhi will be the first case to be heard in this court. Strongly advocating for courts to act as a deterrent in the future to check crimes against women, CJI Kabir on Wednesday said 'a serious message needs to be sent in dealing with such heinous crimes'.
