Juvenile convict in Delhi rape case released

This comes even as the victim Jyoti Singh’s parents Asha Singh and Badrinath Singh have been protesting against his release, with Asha Singh vowing to protest until her wish is fulfilled.

In December 2012, the juvenile was part of the six-member gang that attacked a 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist and her male friend in a bus, where the girl was gruesomely raped and her companion brutally beaten.

If the reformation programme takes 7 or 10 years, can we keep him under detention?

While the convict was released in the evening many protests against the decision of Delhi High Court to pave way for the convict’s release were witnessed in the national capital on Sunday.

We share your concern but our hands are tied by the existing law. “I want justice. He should not be released”.

With the juvenile convict of the December 16 gangrape case set to be free today, the parents of the victim will hold a protest at Jantar Mantar.

Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal has urged the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) against going ahead on the release of the juvenile convict who was taken to an undisclosed location yesterday, a day before he was to be released.

Maliwal also said that she has moved a Special Leave Petition(SLP) in the Supreme Court challenging the release of juvenile convict in the case.

Sources said the juvenile’s identity shall not be disclosed as per legal provisions.
