Sumbramanian Swamy says 16 December juvenile rapist radicalised, HC seeks IB report


The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to the central government on BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s plea against the release of the juvenile convict in the December 16, 2012 gang-rape and sought an IB report about him having been radicalised.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice R.S. Endlaw asked the government to give the IB report in a sealed cover and posted the matter for hearing on Monday.

The juvenile, who was under 18 when arrested for brutal rape and murder of a para-medical student on December 16, 2012, was tried under the Juvenile Justice Act. He was ordered to be keept in a remand home for three years.

The juvenile is set to be released on December 15. The (Intelligence Bureau) IB had raised suspicion of the juvenile being radicalised after being shifted with a juvenile apprehended for the Delhi high court blasts.
