The victim, a physiotherapy student, was brutally raped and assaulted in a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012. She died of her injuries on December 29, 2012 in the multi-specialty Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.
Her male friend, who was accompanying her that day, was also assaulted by the accused and both of them were thrown out of the bus.
Juvenile board's decision 'unfortunate': Delhi victim's kin
Ballia (UP): The family of the Delhi gang-rape victim today termed the Juvenile Justice Board's decision of ruling the sixth accused in the case as minor as "unfortunate" and said that they would challenge it in the court.
"The family would consult legal experts and challenge the matter in the relevant court," the brother of the girl told PTI over phone from Delhi.
"The family is not ready to accept that the sixth accused get anything less than death penalty," the brother said, adding that the minor accused should also get the same punishment of death penalty for which the central government should make necessary changes in the law.
"How can the family accept that the main accused is let off with a mere three year imprisonment," he asked.
On the decision of the Juvenile Board, the brother said that it is based on his school documents whereas he should have been sent for medical examination.
He expressed apprehension of some kind of "fraud" in mentioning the date of birth in school documents and alleged that the minor accused was the one who had played the main role in the incident.
