Indian judge bars reporters from gang rape trial

Media, angry lawyers besiege New Delhi court

NEW DELHI — A magistrate on Monday banned reporting on the New Delhi trial of a gang rape case that has attracted worldwide attention, reacting to a chaotic courtroom filled with members of the news media and a large number of female lawyers who said no one should represent the accused.

“The courtroom is jam-packed, with a lot of disturbance from different nooks and corners,” said Metropolitan Magistrate Namrita Aggarwal, in New Delhi’s Saket district. “It has become completely impossible to carry out proceedings in this manner.”
