New Delhi: The police would no longer be guarding the gangrape convict, who has been moved to an NGO. A source said that when asked two days ago whether he would like to go to his hometown in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh, or be put in the care of an NGO, the gangrape convict had opted for the latter citing security concerns.

Protests over his release continued all through Sunday with the victim’s parents and social activists first arriving near India Gate.

They shouted slogans like “Nabalig ko phansi do (Hang the juvenile convict)... We want justice.” Then they moved to Jantar Mantar. “The irony of this country is that the gangrape convict can move freely but we are not allowed to hold a protest in the heart of the capital,” Nirbhaya’s father, Mr Badrinath Singh, said.

The victim’s mother, Ms Asha Devi, said, “The police is not allowing us to move to India Gate. The right to protest is being denied to us.

Reacting to his release, Ms Asha Devi said, “All knew that he would be released one day or the other. This is total failure of the Central and state governments. Both should have taken adequate steps to prevent the release of this brutal killer.”

Earlier, she had said, “If he comes out, then what is the point of a court hearing or anything..”
