Four men convicted of raping and murdering a woman in New Delhi had their death sentences upheld on Thursday for a crime that caused a huge public backlash against an entrenched culture of violence against women in India. "The day the murderers of my daughter are hanged, we will feel we have got justice," the victim's mother said after the Delhi High Court confirmed the sentence of hanging handed down by a trial judge last September. Indian law bars the press from identifying rape victims. Defense lawyers said they would appeal to the Supreme Court, with one denouncing Thursday's decision as politically motivated.
