DCW files Special Leave Petition in Supreme Court against juvenile’s release


New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women has filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court tonight against the scheduled release of the December 16 gang-rape juvenile convict, who has already been moved out of Delhi.

“DCW filing Special Leave Petition in SC tonight. Will go to Judge’s house, will try get hearing tonight against Nirbhaya convict’s release,” Swati Maliwal, the body’s chief, tweeted.

The convict is scheduled to released on Sunday. 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. Ms. Maliwal earlier said that she was trying to move the apex court and that the registrar of the court has “called for the papers.”

“Trying to move Supreme Court tonight in Nirbhaya’s case. Registrar of the court presently has called for the papers,” she tweeted. “Will be waiting for justice outside CJI home. This is matter of not one Nirbhaya but of all Nirbhaya’s of the country,” she added.
