The juvenile accused in the Delhi gang rape of December 16, 2012 has been sentenced to 3 years in special home today. The juvenile was found guilty of the rape and murder of the 23-year-old paramedical student.
what benefit of doubt.... please tell me how does IPC relate to JJ Act.... anyways what can the courts do? they are bound and helpless... JJ Act does not leave any space for the judge to act
Judge bashing has become a favourate passtime of some persons who are not aware of the law.
please understand the concept of benefit of doubt. Read Section 82 and 83 of the IPC. these are safeguards we provide in the society for the protection of the people of the society only. As long as our neck is not on the noose, we want the harshest of punishment for the criminal, irrespective.
I am pro punishment for the rapist but I understand that following procedure established by law is just as important. because with every judgement and order, we are making precedents.
The precedent should be guiding in itself and not run by the whims and emotions of the society which to me never looks stable anyways.
The Indian Judiciary is doing a fantabulous job, but we just don't stop taking birth, what can anyone do?
It is fashionable to browbeat the Indian judicial system and Judiciary without knowing the law regarding juveniles which as amended in 2006 leaves no option to the courts in this matter and mind it the legislature under the influence and lobbying of so called socialites groups has prescribed the maximum of three years. So don't blame the judiciary as Judges do not come and defend themselves.
The Indian judicial system is unique in more than one way. There is no accountability of judges and judges are not penalized for the adjournments that they grant without rhyme or reason. While a tougher sentence for the juvenile offender was required, the reason why people do not fear the law is that cases drag on for years if not decades. The quality of judgments is also not good in many cases.
Keep with the times...
