Jyoti Protest

Jyoti’s parents have vehemently protested the release of Juvenile. They have said that he cannot get away merely on the pretext of his age. Even the Courts, the Government, the Police and the Public do not want the Juvenile to get away after having committed such a heinous crime simply because of his age. But as per the law of the land, there is no provision to keep an accused below the age of 18, for more than 3 years in prison. Even if the Rajya Sabha is successful in passing the Juvenile Justice Bill tomorrow, it will not have any bearing on the Juvenile accused in this rape case, however it would certainly ensure that in the future all such accused would have to serve their full term even if they are minors.
