The court hearing for the men accused of the gang rape of a 23-year-old woman in New Delhi, the Indian capital, last month is set to begin on Thursday.

The government has introduced a fast-track court to ensure a speedy trial after mass demonstrations over the attack from which the victim later died.

Meanwhile, there are thousands of pending rape cases still to be cleared in the country's courts.

Al Jazeera's Divya Gopalan met one of the women still waiting for justice.
