The former JGLS Sonepat students, who were convicted of raping and blackmailing a fellow student had until now refused to share the password of an iCloud online storage account in which they had allegedly stored the victim's nude photos, but the Supreme Court has now finally ordered them to disclose it, reported the Indian Express and others.

Justices SA Bobde and Mohan Shantanagoudar noted that they would not tolerate “continuing blackmail” and ordered:

You must put her apprehensions to rest…. We won’t relent. You cannot hold such a threat when you are before us

Senior advocate Shanti Bhushan appearing for one of the convicts contended that the survivor had herself taken and handed the pictures over to the accused but senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing for another convict said that if any such password was available, it would be shared.

However, Rohatgi also asserted that the convicts were not guilty of gang-rape and that sex between the victim and the convicts was consensual, to which senior advocate Colin Gonsalves, appearing for the victim, rebutted that he would show the “gut wrenching terror” that the victim was put through to share the photos with the convicts.

The case is in the Supreme Court on the survivor's appeal against the suspension of the convicts' sentences by the Punjab & Haryana high court.
