“Gang Rape Accused A Juvenile”
One of the accused in the New Delhi Gang Rape is being booked as a ‘Juvenile”.
And the school Principal where the Rapist studied appeared before the Juvenile Justice Board in response to its summons to help determine his exact age.
Can there be anything more silly or Outrageous than this?
If you are old enough to rape and that too in a gang rape, you deserve to be treated as an adult, that too a criminal of the worst order.
Hope the boy’s parents regret begetting a son like this.
Are the police likely to allow the rapist to plead ‘insanity’ to escape Justice?
I can see some unprincipled lawyers working on this angle.
A Delhi court on Monday ordered in-camera trial of the Delhi gangrape case and restrained the media from reporting and publishing trial proceedings.
The magisterial court took cognizance of the chargesheet on Saturday and had issued production warrants for the five accused for Monday. The matter will come up for hearing on January 10. A copy of the chargesheet has been provided to the accused.
Allowing the police plea for conducting in-camera proceedings, Aggarwal shared the apprehension raised by the public prosecutor regarding the safety of the undertrial prisoners. She quoted the Saket court complex’s lock-up in-charge, who said that he was unable to bring the accused in the court for want of safe passage or room in the courtroom.
The sources said the juvenile court was not satisfied with the age-related documents presented Monday by the principal of the school in Uttar Pradesh’s Badaun and asked him to produce more documents related to the juvenile’s age by January 15.
The juvenile, one of the six accused in the gang-rape of a 23-year-old trainee paramedical in a moving bus here December 16, had done his primary education from the school.
