Pass juvenile justice bill: Nirbhaya’s parents

New Delhi: The parents of Nirbhaya on Tuesday met MP Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi to demand the early passage of the juvenile justice bill in parliament.

“We have been assured that the bill will be passed in the Rajya Sabha today (Tuesday),” Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi told the media after the meeting at Naqvi’s residence here.

“He (juvenile convict) would not have been released if this bill had been passed six months ago. Though it has been delayed, we want this bill to be passed in parliament at the earliest,” she added.

Naqvi said, “We have held discussions with all concerned. All parties are of the view that the bill should be passed.”

Nirbhaya, a 23-year-old paramedical student, was gang-raped and brutalised in a moving bus in Delhi 2012.

The juvenile convicted of the 2012 gang rape was released from a reformation home in the national capital on December 20.

The juvenile justice bill was listed yesterday for discussion and passing in the Rajya Sabha after demands from members, amidst protests over the release of the December 16 gang-rape juvenile convict.

The parents of ‘Nirbhaya’ on Monday led a massive demonstration in the national capital to demand an amendment to the Juvenile Justice Act of 2000 so as to treat a juvenile committing a heinous crime as an adult offender. (IANS)
