New Delhi: Police on Sunday December 20, forced parents of Nirbhaya aka Jyothi Singh to leave Jantar Mantar where they had decided to protest against the release of the juvenile convict in the December 16 gangrape case.

Earlier, a large number of students had gathered to express their dissent. People were seen raising slogans against the release of the juvenile. People held various placards with slogans like, ‘Age is not the criteria if crime is rape’ and ‘We want justice, hang the rapist’ among others.

The parents of the victim had earlier decided to hold the protest at the India Gate, but because of the imposition of Section 144 in the area, they were not allowed.

The convict from Badaun village, who is now 20-years-old and was known to be the most brutal of the attackers, has been taken to an undisclosed location from a correction home in North Delhi amid concerns that there was a threat to his life.

In December 2012, the juvenile was part of the six member gang that lured a 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist Jyothi Singh and her male friend onto a bus, where she was gruesomely raped. She subsequently succumbed to her injuries 13 days later in Singapore.
