In India, death sentence can only be given in the ‘rarest of rare’ cases. The meaning of this term is interpreted in several ways. Apparently, the court is expected to rule the Delhi gangrape case as rarest of rare cases on Friday. Another convict involved in the same case was tried in juvenile court. He has been given a chance to reform with a sentence of three years imprisonment.
Similar gangrape cases have emerged from different parts of India in the past few months. Human rights activists, celebrities, influential politicians and international organizations have stood together to fight for the protection of women in India.
