New Delhi virtual rape case winds up in virtual court, as expected

The commencement of the pre-trial proceedings in the Delhi gang-rape case descended into chaos on Monday when a section of lawyers created a ruckus in the court, objecting to a few advocates coming forward to defend the accused or serve as amicus curiae.

The Delhi Police then moved an application for holding further proceedings away from public glare, and the court ordered in-camera proceedings and put a gag reporting on the case by the print and electronic media.

This is entirely consistent with my assumption that the supposed crime never happened.  There are many potential motives for such a hoax, some of which will become apparent as time goes on.
