NEW DELHI: One of the December 16 gang rape convicts, Vinay Sharma, who had been sentenced to death allegedly attempted suicide in Delhi’s Tihar jail yesterday night. Sources said, the convict had been admitted to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital and his condition is stated to be stable. At around 9.30pm on Thursday Sharma tried to hang himself from an iron grill of his cell using a cloth. He was found by a Tamil Nadu special police personnel who was on duty. Sharma had consumed a heavy dose of anti-depressants before trying to commit suicide, according to jail sources. Sources said Sharma was suffering from depression and was on medication. Last year Sharma had asked for security, citing risk to his life. His lawyer told a Delhi court that Sharma was beaten up “very badly” on August 15 and 16. Sharma, the lawyer said, feared for his life as some inmates had “openly” threatened him with murder, sources say. Six men – one of them a juvenile – were found guilty of rape and murder of a physiotherapist in a moving bus on December 16, 2012. One of the accused, Ram Singh, was found dead in his Tihar cell in a suspected suicide in March 2013. Sharma and three others were sentenced to death.  ]]>
