The Bar Council of Delhi has volunteered services of its members and senior criminal lawyers to act as special prosecutors in the gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedic student.
In a resolution passed by the council on December 21, it has offered "pro bono services for prosecuting this case in a Court of Law against the rapists".
The Bar Council also said the efforts of the police, which has been "able to solve the crime and arrest the culprits in the shortest
time" were appreciable, and has expressed its expectation that the chargesheet would be filed "at the earliest".
The Bar Council has offered services of senior criminal lawyer Ramesh Gupta, advocates Amit Sharma, Rajkesh Sehrawat, Aman Sareen and Puneet Mittal to act as special prosecutors in the case.
"Being a statutory body, we have given our suggestion. Now it is up to the government to
appoint a special prosecutor or public prosecutor as they deem fit," BCD Secretary Murari Tiwari said.
Tiwari has also said the council was planning to hold a seminar for advocates, judicial officers and police, to discuss ways to help "real" rape victims while chalking out a plan to deal with "fake" rape complaints.
