Delhi Gang Rape: 'A Criminal Has Been Let Off,' Says Jyoti's Mother
New Delhi: Reactions poured in as the Delhi Court today said that the youngest of six men who raped and tortured a young medical student, Jyoti Singh, on a moving bus in 2012 can no longer be kept at a special home.
  • Despite all our efforts, a criminal who committed a heinous crime has been let off by the Court and the Government. The assurance that we were given that we will get justice has not happened. A criminal has been let off.

  • We are upset but what can we do, we are bound by the Court order. We are not bigger than the Court. But our fight is not over, we will continue.

    Jyoti Singh's Father

  • It's extremely sad. Shameful that a man like him would be walking free. I don't know what sort of a reformation has this man gone through. I can't imagine the fate of those who he might run into, women who might not even know that he is a convicted rapist.

    Swati Maliwal, Chairperson, Delhi Commission for Women

  • We will work on changing the law.

  • Rapist being released can be arrested by Delhi Police under 107/151,CRPC for apprehension of breach of peace till Supreme Court considers parents' petition.

  • No matter his age, it's worrying that he's going to walk free. Not questioning HC judgement, but what Nirbhaya's mother is feeling, I am feeling the same.
