Parents of the December 16  gangrape victim today met Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi  seeking his party’s support for the passage of the Juvenile  Justice Bill in Rajya Sabha.

After the meeting, the victim’s mother Asha Devi said she  had been assured by Gandhi that his party would support the bill in Rajya Sabha today.

Earlier, the parents met Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi at his residence.

After meeting Naqvi, they said they have been assured by the minister that the bill would be passed in Rajya Sabha today. The mother of the December 16 gangrape victim said there has been enough discussions.

“The bill should be passed today. I have been assured that it will be passed today. Our struggle is to get this bill
passed,” she said, adding that she will like to go to Rajya  Sabha, if a pass is arranged, to see it getting passed.

The amendments to Juvenile Justice Act will allow children between 16-18 years to be tried as adults in heinous  crime cases. The Bill has been passed by Lok Sabha and is  pending before Rajya Sabha where it is listed today.

      Children in many American states can ask a court to declare them "emanted minors" at age 16 where by parental/ state, supervision/ control, is no more required. Why then a 16 year old is not held responsible for the horrendous crime he/ she commits?
