The juvenile convict in the December 16, 2012 gang-rape was released on December 20 and sent to an NGO at an undisclosed destination with police no longer guarding him.

Following his release, a large number of media persons, policemen, and others gathered at Badaun’s Bhavanipur Nagla village since early Sunday morning and waited for the rumoured arrival of the juvenile convicted in Nirbhaya gangrape case.

While there has been no official intimation about the move, a few media reports have led people to believe that the teenager was planning to move to his native village, and they are not happy about the fact.

Talking about this, Saumitra Yadav, Badaun SSP said:



“In the last 10 years, he has not shown any attachment with his family members and may not return here. Besides, it will become extremely difficult for him to get an employment in this village. It will be convenient for him to reside in a bigger city where people will not be easily able to identify him and his past deeds.”

While that might be the case, the local villagers are unhappy with the “bad press” that the village is getting because of him.

With a population of just 1,500 and the kind of attention that they have been getting in the past few days, majority of the villagers don’t want the juvenile to return at all.

Even the local cops feel that as he never had any attachment to his family, he would have a better chances of rehabilitation elsewhere than here where everybody knows about him.

Station officer, CP Singh of Islamnagar police station too agreed with the the local police and said they only were monitoring the situation because they had heard about it on news and the family in turn were not aware of it.

“On the basis of media reports, we thought of monitoring the ground situation in this village. We enquired about the juvenile’s return from his family but they were ignorant about it as they too had learned everything through media only. The juvenile’s mother said she had taken ill due to constant nagging of media persons in the past few days… There is no clarity on his return. In such a situation, there is no point in beefing up the security of the village,” he said.

While the Police left on Sunday evening, the villagers are still apprehensive and don’t like the bad publicity the area has been getting. Talking about one such issue Laltesh Singh Yadav, former village pradhan said:

“A few labourers who work in Delhi are now finding it difficult to get a room there as no one wants to keep a person who belongs to this village as tenant. Though the juvenile committed a brutal crime, other villagers are also paying a price for this. If he comes back, the trouble for the villagers will increase further.”
