Suicide by gang-rape accused: Juvenile may get life-time privileged security

It refers to suicide in high-security Tihar jail (New Delhi) by one of the six notorious accused of Delhi’s infamous 16/12 gang-rape. Indian law which provides more than required opportunities to criminals cannot change society’s anguish towards heinous crimes like Ramsingh did, making even Jail inmates and staffers hate him to the extent that he committed suicide in custody.

 

Now big question arises what will happen to the only juvenile accused of the case who is likely to be released soon after attaining age of 18 years. Society may never accept free moving of such a criminal-minded ‘child’, and as such may have any-time danger to his life after his being freed from juvenile-home. Will our system provide him a privileged high-level security for life because government has a responsibility to provide adequate security to every citizen, criminal or otherwise, in case there does exist a serious security-threat to his/her life!
