A COURT in New Delhi has heard DNA evidence links five men with a deadly gang rape in the city last month.

At a pre-trial hearing on Saturday prosecutors told the court that blood stains found on the clothing of all five accused men matched the blood of the 23-year-old victim.

The five suspects were also allegedly found with items stolen from the woman.

The court also heard that medical records from the Singapore hospital where the woman died showed her death was caused by septicaemia and organ failure.

"We have filed all the evidence," Rajiv Mohan, additional public prosecutor, told the court in Saket, in the south of the city.
