​New Delhi: Found guilty of all offences against him, the juvenile accused in the infamous Delhi gang rape of December 16, 2012 has been sentenced to 3 years in special home on Saturday. The youth was found guilty of raping and murdering the 23-year-old paramedical student by the Juvenile Justice Board.
The minor was let off in a case of robbery on the same day due to the period already spent in probation home during inquiry.
Reacting to the verdict, the girl's mother said that sentence of three years is not enough. The father of the girl said that they felt cheated by the verdict.

"We are not bothered about minority or majority status of the accused. All we want is justice," the mother of the 23-year-old gang rape victim said earlier, ahead of the Juvenile Justice Board's verdict in the case involving a minor.
"Like the four adult accused are expected to get death sentence, he (juvenile) should also be hanged," she said. She was asked if the maximum sentence of three years under the Juvenile Justice Act, if awarded, is commensurate with the crime.
"This day reminds me of the morning of December 17 when we heard of the crime committed with our daughter," she said arriving at the JJB in morning on Saturday.
The victim's mother said, "Earlier, we were praying with folded hands before doctors and God for our daughter's life. Now we are praying before JJB to convict her assaulter and award maximum sentence."

The girl died in a Singapore hospital on December 29. The victim's mother had also said she was satisfied with the proceedings and was sure to get justice for her deceased daughter.
Large number of mediapersons were awaiting the verdict of the Board. The public in and around the JJB and relatives of juveniles accused in other cases could be seen waiting for the same.
The apex court had on August 22 allowed it to pronounce the judgement in the case against the juvenile, who according to the police, was the 'most brutal' of all the six accused persons.
The Board, which convicted the juvenile for robbing Ramadhar, a carpenter, who had boarded the bus on the night of December 16, 2012 and was thrown out before the girl and her friend were assaulted, is also expected to pronounce the sentence in the robbery case.
During the inquiry, the juvenile had denied all charges against him, claiming he was not a participant in the horrendous crime.
While the juvenile faced inquiry before the JJB, the other four adult accused - Mukesh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur - are being tried before a fast track court.
Key accused Ram Singh was found hanging in Tihar Jail in March and the proceedings against him stand abated. They have been charged with gang rape, murder, criminal conspiracy, unnatural sex and robbery besides other sections of IPC. The case had sparked intense debate on anti-rape laws and whether the juvenile age should be lowered.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
