A Juvenile Justice Board on Saturday convicted the youngest of the six defendants in the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old physiotherapy student in New Delhi in December and sentenced him to three years in a detention facility for juveniles. The convicted juvenile, 17 at the time of the murder, received three years which is the maximum punishment a juvenile offender can be awarded in the Indian legal system and also the reason prosecutors pushed for the rapist to be tried as an adult. “Three years is not enough. We have been wronged,” said Asha Devi, the mother of the victim, who burst into tears as she walked out of the courtroom after the judgment.
