What Supreme Court Said While Refusing To Stop Delhi Gang-Rape Convict's Release
New Delhi:  A petition challenging the release of the youngest of six men found guilty of raping and torturing a medical student on a moving bus in Delhi in 2012 was rejected by the Supreme Court on Monday. The petition was filed by the Delhi Commission for Women after midnight on Saturday.

Below are the five observations that the top court made:
  1. Under what jurisdiction we can detain him?
  2. If anything has to be done, it has to be done according to the law. We have to enforce the law.
  3. Will we not be taking away somebody's right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. There is nothing in the law to provide that.
  4. We share your concern but under existing law, detention cannot go beyond three years.
  5. If the reformation programme takes 7 or 10 years, can we keep him under detention? Where is the legislative sanction?
