The juvenile convict in the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case will be monitored for a year when he is released later this month, according to Times Now. The 20-year-old is likely to be put up with an NGO upon completion of his three-year term, the punishment awarded to him under the Juvenile Justice Act. The news channel quoted unnamed sources. Last month, union minister Maneka Gandhi had advocated a “close watch” on the convict after his sentence was completed.
The man, who is now 20 years old, was the youngest of the six who raped and brutally tortured a 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in Delhi three years ago, an incident that sparked a massive outcry across the nation and globe. The parents of the gangrape victim had also expressed their exasperation with the legal system after he was given just a lighter jail term of three years as he was a minor when he committed the crime.
