Nirbhaya’s parents have been detained by police for protesting outside juvenile reform home against release of juvenile convict.
The juvenile convict in the December 16 gang rape case has been shifted out of the correctional home.
Reports suggest he is being moved to an undisclosed location due to security . He was scheduled to be released on December 20 after the completion of the three-year-term. The Quint learns that a Delhi police team is currently with him. He may or may not be escorted to Uttar Pradesh.
The convict, who is now 20 years old, has been sent to an undisclosed location amid concerns that there was threat to his life, and several agencies are keeping an eye on the matter, said a highly-placed source.
He was moved out a day after the High Court refused to stay his release. The convict is likely to walk free from the undisclosed location on Sunday, in adherence to the existing legal provision, the source added.
