Delhi Chhawla Gangrape: Acid on eyes and face, Supreme Court acquits the convicts of Chhawla gangrape

New DelhiThe Supreme Court on Monday gave its verdict in the 2012 Chhawla gang rape case of Delhi. The top court has acquitted the three accused Ravi, Rahul and Vinod. The court also overturned the decision of the Delhi High Court and the lower court in which the death sentence was awarded to the convicts. In the year 2012, a 19-year-old girl from Uttarakhand was murdered by the accused in Delhi by crossing all limits of cruelty. The Supreme Court had earlier reserved its decision in this matter.

What happened that night with ‘Anamika’
Like Nirbhaya, the name of this innocent was also changed to Anamika. She was originally from Pauri Garhwal in Uttarakhand. In Delhi, she lived in Qutub Vihar of Chhawla. On 9 February 2012, as usual, Anamika was leaving her work and going towards home. Then on the way, the three accused named Rahul, Ravi and Vinod kidnapped the girl. After this, whatever those demons did to that girl, it would rip someone’s heart. When the daughter was not found, the family members lodged a police report and search was started. After a lot of search, the police found the girl’s body in a very bad condition in Rewari, Haryana. Later investigation revealed that he was subjected to a lot of torture.

Investigation revealed that apart from gang-raping the girl, the accused had stained her body with cigarettes and hot iron. Acid was poured on the girl’s face and eyes. He was badly beaten up with the tools in the car.

What has the Supreme Court done on this decision so far?
Anamika’s gang rape case reached the Supreme Court. Justices UU Lalit and Ash Ravindra Bhatt and Bela M Trivedi had reserved the verdict on the matter on 6 April. On behalf of the Delhi government, Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati had demanded confirmation of the death sentence. The Delhi government’s counsel had said that the families are afraid of sending their girls out because of these savage scoundrels.

During this, a request was also made to consider the possibility of reforming the culprits. It was argued to the court that one of the convicts, named Vinod, is suffering from intellectual disability. His ability to think is not good. The counsel appearing for the convicts had urged them to adopt a sympathetic attitude against them.
