Now, it is not the right time to talk about him (the juvenile convict of the gangrape case) as he is a free man and there is no law to hold him back. Our fight is not only for us but for all women and girls,” the victim’s father Badri Singh Pandey told reporters after meeting the Congress leader at the latter’s residence.The bill is expected to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha at 2pm on Tuesday, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien tweeted.
