“JURM JEET GAYA, HUM HAAR GAYE (CRIME HAS WON, WE HAVE LOST).” Mother of the gang-rape victim
Parents of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim said they were very disappointed as “despite all our efforts for three years, the government and courts have released a criminal”
WHAT DELHI HC SAID
“The maximum stay that can be directed in the special home... is three years and as the [ juvenile convict] would be completing the period of three years by December 20, there cannot be any direction to continue his stay [there].”
AFTER THE RELEASE
The convict is required to be under the constant watch of a child welfare officer for two years. He would be handed over either to his parents or a close guardian.
The convict (face covered) was sentenced to 3 yrs in a special home as he was a juvenile at time of the incident.
