NEW DELHI:  As decks seemed to be cleared for the release of the juvenile convict in December 16 gangrape case, the convict was on Saturday moved to undisclosed location following protest outside juvenile reform home.

Nirbhaya’s parents along with  activists, students are protesting outside juvenile reform home against release of the convict.

Delhi High Court on Friday refused to stay the release of the juvenile convict in rape case. The juvenile convict is slated to be released on December 20, Sunday.

The Delhi High Court had reserved its order on the release of the juvenile convict in the Nirbhaya gangrape case after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy plead that the juvenile convict should not be released till it is demonstrably assured that he has reformed himself and was not a menace to the society.

In December 2012, the teenager was part of the six member gang that lured a 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist and her male friend onto a bus, where the girl was gruesomely raped and her companion brutally beaten. The girl subsequently succumbed to her injuries 13 days later in Singapore.

The incident caused nationwide outrage and led to widespread outpouring of anger against the rapists, including the teenager.
