DCW reaches out to SC as a last-ditch attempt to stop juvenile convict’s release

Delhi Commission for Women will file a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court on Saturday night against the scheduled release of the December 16 gang-rape juvenile convict, who has already been moved out of Delhi. The convict is scheduled to be released on Sunday.

DCW Chief Swati Maliwal took to Twitter to share the information:

DCW filing Special Leave Petition in SC tonight. Wil go to Judge’s house, wil try get hearing tonight against Nirbhayas convict release

The development comes on a day the victim’s parents were detained and later released after they held a protest against allowing the juvenile convict to walk free. The convict, who is now 20 years old, has been taken to an undisclosed location from a correction home in North Delhi amid concerns that there was threat to his life.
