Delhi gangrape case: DCW moves SC in a last ditch attempt to stall juvenile’s release

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) late Saturday night made a last-ditch attempt to stall the scheduled release of the juvenile convict in the December 16 gangrape case Sunday by setting in motion the process to seek the intervention of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the DCW plea against the release of the juvenile convict in the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case on Monday. However, the court hasn’t put a stay on juvenile’s scheduled release from his reform home today at 5 pm.
