Delhi gang-rape case: Minor accused charged with rape, murder

NEW DELHI: Juvenile Justice Board on Thursday framed rape and murder charges against minor accused in the December 16 Delhi gang-rape case.

The family of the Delhi gang-rape victim had demanded death penalty for the juvenile accused in the incident.

"Sazaa kisi sey kam nahin honaa chahiye, chahey woh juvenile hai ya kuchh bhi hai (the punishment should not be less even if he is a juvenile)," Nirbhaya's father had said.

He said the punishment should be equal for all. "Sab ko barabar. Barabar maney phansi (same punishment for all, in other words death sentence)," he said.

"The family is not ready to accept that the sixth accused get anything less than death penalty," the victim's brother had said.
