Nirbhaya case: HC refuses to stop release of juvenile rapist

The Delhi High Court on Friday refused to stay the release of December 16 gang rape case juvenile convict and said that the juvenile convict could be released on or before December 20.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court had reserved its order on the release of the juvenile convict in the Nirbhaya gang rape case after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy plead that the juvenile convict should not be released till it is demonstrably assured that he has reformed himself and was not a menace to the society.

The high court, however, appreciated points raised by petitioner.

Earlier, Nirbhaya’s mother, took her daughter’s real name in public and said people who committed heinous crimes like rape should hang their heads in shame and not the victims or their families.

The 23-year-old paramedical student was sexually assaulted on the night of December 16 three years ago and died 13 days later in Singapore
