Refusal to stop the release of the juvenile by Supreme Court

Sharing is caring!

The Supreme Court on Monday,declined to interfere with the Delhi High Court decision not to halt the release of the juvenile convicted in the December 16, 2012 Delhi gangrape case.As the juvenile involved in the gangrape was around 17 at the time of the crime, he was sent to a juvenile home for three years. He is now 20, and after release on Sunday, has been kept in the care of an NGO.Justice Lalit told senior counsel Guru Krishna-kumar, appearing for the Delhi Commission for Women: “We share your concern, but we cannot go beyond statute. We need a clear legislative sanction to keep him in a home beyond three years.”
