16th December 2012 , as named by the media ‘Nirbhaya’ a 23 year old student got raped and brutally murdered in a moving bus and she and her male friend were thrown out of the bus to die. The girl could not be saved. An incident which brought nation on roads. Culprits caught included 5 men between whom one was a juvenile. One of them committed suicide in the jail , three await verdict while the juvenile found guilty of rape and murder has been sentenced 3 years in Reform Home minus the eight months which he has already spent in the reform home during the trial.
A juvenile ? He who can rape and murder brutally , can he be actually even termed a juvenile and treated as one ? Was justice delivered ? 😦

Pathetic!! No words to describe my anger, hopelessness, frustration!! Arrghhh!!
Frustrated me too !! 😦 this was pure mockery !!
This is totally disgusting! A rapist is sentenced to just three years because of a certificate that he is a minor. Now that is like giving an invitation to vile men below the age of 18 to continue such disgraceful acts…
This is an event which makes me doubt my own country’s judicial system…
😦 Yes Karan the verdict sounded robotic and meaningless .. if just books were to follow on conditions and logic .. why human Judges ? Why not softwares ! A programme would work faster than the judges who just know how to postpone dates and cases !
Draconian laws should be brought into existence to curb these kind of vilations. As a fed up citizen, I vote for that.
the law seem crippled and misused in this case 😦
Jack such are the laws which are meant to protect the innocent and gullible, if somebody gets advantage of this law, what can be done
true The Law works on Logic and only Logic Vijay ji 😦
Patheitic! Simply pathetic! I say, the underage rapist should have got the largest sentence or a ngood kick on his a$$ which will take him to his grave!
itna gussa rai ke typos hojarain! 😦
alas !! Law knows no emotions 😦
justice blindfolded by yet another loophole. high time we wake-up..
agree with you completely !!
thanks for passing on the message 🙂
The pleasure is all mine…Back to blogosphere and all I come to your website 😀
They should at least make his face public so that others can save themselves from such a pathetic being that should be ripped apart alive
there are many who would then try to kill him .. fanatics are many .. and in any case I really doubt if he will live long ..
That is the best we can expect from Indian Judicial System..
Following logic of the law , Harsha Sir .. he was always expected to be out with minimal scratches and that is what has happened !! 😦
Absurd and pointless sentence. A criminal mind which was 15+ years in the making is going to be reformed in 3 years? Really?
that is the point Vaisakh .. this mean a programmed robot and take similar decisions why put a salaried judge if he is just following logic of the law and no logic of common sense 😦
Is it bad if I don’t feel like being a part off this country anymore?
not at all .. in fact our India is becoming a jungle of opportunists and blind law
If in his juvenile age he can perform such heinous crime, what he may do after three years!!!
Yes Debopam.. that is why he is being sent to a Reform Home … a place kids reform less and come out as bigger criminals more 😦
Such a sad state for our country. I think, most of us are angry and feel that judiciary has mocked us.
17 year old brute – cub just assassinated our government !!!!
in fact yours is the best statement at the judicial mockery.. feels helpless.
Deep sigh – Ive been told I speak toooo much . whats going with this ? Its no longer about just the victim – wheres the Law ?
if this was the decision to be taken .. better he would have been left in public .. for a Talibani punishment .. much needed. 😦
Very Disappointing… Infact the “juvenile” is the was who played the most brutal part in the crime!
yes ..kids and elderly .. can actually do anything .. here no matter how capable they are to destroy intestines or break faith in humanity and spirituality .. they will be pardoned 😦
The Union Cabinet in June 2012 cleared a Bill that raises the age of legal sex from 16 to 18. It clearly states that sex under the age of 18 whether consensual or not will be deemed as legal rape and is subject to trial with sentences ranging from three years to life imprisonment.. When consensual sex can be given life imprisonment, how come a rapist get only 3 years…Damn, they are manipulating the law
Rules are like those rubber rods which change shapes as per the beholder’s wishes
