Juvenile Rapist Is Free; Nirbhaya's Parents Detained

New Delhi; Dec21: The police and protesters faced off at India Gate as the youngest of the six men, convicted as a juvenile for the gangrape and murder of paramedical student Jyothi Singh, was finally released at about 5 pm on Sunday from a correction centre and put in the care of an NGO in Delhi.

His release came amidst raging protests in the capital staged by Nirbhaya's parents and activists who protested against his release and demanded death penalty for him. 

Nirbhaya's parents led protests at Rajpath in New Delhi, hitting out at the government for 'failing them'. Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi broke down while speaking to the media and said that they failed in their efforts get the law to treat the juvenile convict like an adult in the case. 

Nirbahaya's parents while protesting had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi as to when justice would be delivered to them.

"We demand that the juvenile should not be released. I met the Prime Minister last year but I didn't get any answer. Today I want to meet the Prime Minister again and I want to ask him when would I get the justice?" Nirbhaya's mother told the media here.

"We are helpless as far as the release is concerned. Our government, whether Centre or state, they only listen to you when you protest and get lathicharged, else they don't care," said the victim's father Badri Singh Pandey.
