Flash News: Delhi HC refuses to stay release of juvenile convict Nirbhaya gang rape

The Delhi high court on Friday refused to rule on extending his three-year stay in a reform home of the juvenile convicted in the 2012 Delhi gang rape and murder of Nirbhaya will walk free on Sunday, after that the BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had urged the court to not release the juvenile, claiming he had been "radicalised" while in the reform home. Based on his plea, the court has issued notices to the central and Delhi governments on the matter. The next date of hearing is March 28.

The parents of Nirbhaya were shocked by the court's decision to let the juvenile walk free. "Even after all our efforts, the juvenile convict will now be released," a teary-eyed Nirbhaya's mother said outside the court. "What message is this sending out to the public of the country. All I wanted was justice but crime has won today. There is politics in the country and us innocent people are always sacrificed."

Calling the juvenile who's almost 20 now, an 'animal', Swamy last week said it would be dangerous to release him into society. He also appealed to the court to make provisions in the law to deal with situations where juveniles are convicted of such serious offences.
The Centre as well sought an extension of his stay in the reform home until all issues -- including the juvenile's mental health and a post-release rehabilitation plan or him -- had been considered by the authorities.
