Delhi gangrape: SC notice to Centre seeking re-trial of juvenile

Agencies, New Delhi
The Supreme Court today issued a notice to the Centre on a petition filed by the parents of the victim in the Delhi gangrape case seeking re-trial of the juvenile in a fast track court under the provisions of Indian Penal Code(IPC) and  Code of Criminal Procedure(CrPC).
A bench comprising Justices B S Chauhan and S A Bobde issued a notice to the Union ministry for Women and Child development after hearing the counsel for the petitioners who contended that the juvenile was most brutal and savage on the hapless victim who was subjected to gangrape and physical torture in a moving bus
on the night of December 16.
The petitioners have also contended that the convict was only six months short of attaining the age of majority on the date of occurrence and it will be a travesty of justice if the brute is allowed to get away with a very light sentence of three years in a reformation home.
Four others have already been sentenced to death by a fast track court in Saket.
The accused driver, Ram Singh had allegedly committed suicide in Tihar jail.
Earlier, a PIL was filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking the determination of the juvenility of the accused keeping in view the gravity of the offence committed by him.
The 23-year-old Delhi braveheart paramedic student had succumbed to her injuries on December 29 last year in a Singapore hospital.
The parents of the victim have demanded death for the juvenile for showing maximum barbarity, depravity to the  victim.
