Delhi gang rape verdict is finally out and the rapist juvenile has been found guilty. But he has been given just three yrs in special home

Many people in the country and beyond will be feeling very disappointed due to the fact that the juvenile gang rape accused who has been found guilty of raping and murdering a para-medical student in New Delhi has been given just three years detention in special home.

Many people across the country who were outraged by the beastly attitude of the five men including this juvenile were demanding capital punishment for all five including this boy.

The judgment was delivered in New Delhi today by the Juvenile Justice Board that despite finding his active complicity in the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old ‘Nirbhaya’ late last year gave just three years punishment. In heinous cases in many other countries a juvenile is not treated like a normal kid and given long and difficult punishments. The lenient laws in India have proved that the criminal actually comes out of the special home merely three years after killing a young woman after brutally raping her several times.

Many accounts of the victims had clearly established beyond doubt that this teenaged criminal was most brutal of all and had beaten the girl and her friend with iron rods. More grisly details have been told and retold in details and there is no point in detailing them once again here.

The incident that happened late last year had created unprecedented outrage across the country, particularly in national capital. While announcing the verdict Anil Sharma, the chief investigating officer in the case said, “He has been convicted of rape and murder and sentenced to three years in a correctional home subject to review”. Reports suggest that the murderer and rapist who was 17 years of age at the time of the attack, has been sentenced to three years in a reform home, the maximum sentence he could have faced, his lawyer Rajesh Tewari said. Indian law forbids the publication of his name, though he has since turned 18.

Now this perceived leniency on the part of the authorities in dealing with an underage murder will spark another round of protests. The perceived leniency of the sentence is likely to spark further anger in India where the suspects, some of whom have been beaten up in jail, are public hate figures. There were many protesters outside of the court asking harsh sentence against the criminal.
