New Delhi: The youngest convict in the December 16 Delhi gang-rape case of a physiotherapy student is likely to be sent to an “after-care facility’, to ensure that the juvenile is kept under watch for his own safety.

The juvenile convict, who reportedly inflicted maximum wounds on the Gang-rape victim is all set to walk-free on December 20 after completing his term in the observation stay home. However, he is expected to be shifted to an ‘after care home for boys’ and the decision on this will be taken by the Juvenile Justice Board.

Even Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi had said that the juvenile should be kept under surveillance after his term ends.
At these ‘after care centres’, juveniles as well as adults are given formal education and are taught skills to help them earn livelihood.

But the NGOs working with such juveniles say that the government-run after-care programme has been defunct for some time now. So there is a possibility, the juvenile might be handed over to an NGO-run after-care facility.

It is said that the juvenile is calm these days  at the special home Place of Safety in Majnu Ka Tila, said a welfare officer.
