Nirbhaya Case: Will India honour Nirbhaya’s sacrifice
22 December 2015,
New Delhi: Nirbhaya’s parents meet Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi regarding the discussion and passing of Juvenile Justice Bill in the Rajya Sabha today.
It is expected that the JJ Bill will be discussed and debated properly. The time decided for discussion on the bill is 2 pm.
Subi Chaturvedi, Activist said, “We have the opportunity today to impact the course of future generations. This bill is really important. Now when the bill has been brought to the table, we as people of the civil society are asking to look at the nature of the crime, look t the laws other countries have made.”
Anuja Kapoor, Pschologist said, “JJ Act in itself is exhaustive in nature and it should not be changed. Rather it can be amended in such a way that the severity of the crime can be taken up.”
Whether JJ Bill gets passed in the RS is yet to be seen.
