‘Black Day’ observed in UP against juvenile’s release

People from all walks of life on Thursday gathered here to observe ‘Black Day’ to protest against the release of the youngest convict of the horrific December 16 gang rape case.

The protest programme was organised by the daughter-in-law of Samajwadi supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav in Gomti Nagar area here, where people released ‘black’ balloons to register their protest and also burnt an effigy of the juvenile offender.

Addressing the gathering, Aparna said the convict might have been released since he was a juvenile, but they would not allow him to enter his native place in Uttar Pradesh.

“We will take all efforts to ensure that he lands in jail again,” Aparna said and demanded observing “Shahidi Diwas” on the death anniversary of the rape victim on December 29. “I will seek information about the identity of the rape convict through RTI and it will be made public,” she added.

The gang rape victim’s parents also took part in the programme and demanded justice for their daughter.

“The convict should not be given age benefit and should be arrested again. Release of the convict is injustice to my daughter.
