NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's top court has put on hold the death sentence of two convicts on Monday, defence lawyer A.P. Singh said, in a December 2012 Delhi gang-rape case that sparked nationwide outrage about sexual assaults in India.
The sentences for the convicts, gym instructor Vinay Sharma and bus cleaner Akshay Kumar Singh, were put on hold by the Supreme Court, said Singh.
