New Delhi: The juvenile accused in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape case will be released later this month but will still be closely monitored and under the observation of an NGO for a vocational training.

Maneka Gandhi had requested the Home Minister few days ago for tracking the sex offender even as he will be released.

The 17-year-old convict in the Nirbhaya case is expected to be assigned to an NGO once he completes his three-year punishment at a correctional facility. The convict’s activities will be observed for a year, stated a daily.

The accused juvenile was the youngest amongst the six offenders who raped and inhumanly tortured the 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in Delhi 3 years ago.

The Union minister remarked, on the expected release of the juvenile, that his release was not in the best interest of the society, although he justified it under the spectrum of law which needs to prevail and be equal to all.

“I don’t know whether the justice has been served, but certainly the law has been adhered to,” said the minister.

The parents of the December 16 gang-rape victim had also conveyed their frustration for the legal system, that failed to deliver “complete justice” to the victim according to them and questioned whether the then juvenile convict has undergone any reform.

“He was few months short of an adult while committing the crime and was sent to a reformation centre for this reason. But did he reform? Thousands of girls are being raped across the country. What has changed?” said the victim’s mother in an interview with a newspaper.

Four other men, who were found guilty along with him, are on death row whereas one of the charged died in prison. Nirbhaya died 13 days after the incident, in a hospital in Singapore where she had been taken for treatment.

The 37-year-old woman was driven around west Delhi early Friday and later taken to a shop where two more men waited. She was gang-raped there.

In her complaint, the woman said she was gang-raped in a puncture repair shop.

“On the basis of the woman’s complaint, a case of gang-rape and abduction has been registered. All the accused have been arrested,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Pushpendra Kumar.

“The woman was kidnapped in Sagarpur near Paschim Vihar and gang-raped at a shop in Peeragarhi. The shop is about 15 km away from the spot from where she was kidnapped,” said a police officer.

The woman is separated from her husband and lives in Sagarpur along with her three children. She said she left home at 10.30 p.m. on Thursday to fetch coconut water and medicine from a nearby market. She was walking towards the market when a Meru cab stopped next to her.

Two men who were sitting in the rear seat overpowered her and pulled her inside the car. They gagged her and threatened to kill her if she screamed for help.

“The three men (including a driver known to her) drove her around on west Delhi roads for over an hour during which they were talking to somebody on mobile phone,” the officer added.

The woman said two men waited for them at the shop in Peeragarhi. “The five took turns to rape her,” the officer said.

At around 4.30 a.m., the accused let off the woman and threatened her with dire consequences if she approached police.

But the woman informed police. A medical examination confirmed has rape.

Meru cabs spokesperson described the incident unfortunate and said: “Meru provided full support to the police by identifying the location of the vehicle, residence address of the driver and background details. This helped the police confiscate the vehicle and nab the driver within hours.”
