Nearly nine months after 23-year-old Nirbhaya's death, the Juvenile Justice Board has pronounced the juvenile
guilty of rape and murder. He will be sent to a correctional home for 3 years. The sentence has sparked a lot of public outrage an eventual lowering of the juvenile age from 18 to 16 years. "This day reminds me of the morning of December 17th when we heard of the crime committed with our daughter. Earlier, we were praying with folded hands before doctors and God for our daughter's life. Now we are praying before JJB to convict her assaulter and award maximum sentence. We have heard that he will get a maximum of three year sentence, this is really upsetting for us. It will be a life long regret for us that our daughter's murderer was alive" said a shattered mother.
