The Delhi High Court on Friday declined to stay the release of a 20-year-old convict in the infamous Delhi gang-rape incident on Friday, allowing him to walk free on December 20.
The convict was sent to a special home for maximum three years as he was a juvenile at the time of the incident, in which, he, along with five others, brutally gang-raped a 23-year-old paramedical student on December 16, 2012. The victim succumbed to injuries 13 days later.
A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath said there cannot be any direction to continue his stay in the special home as the convict would be completing maximum three years by December 20 as per the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000.
