In India, the youngest rapist convicted of fatally attacking a 23-year-old student in New Delhi three years ago is set to walk free, after the Delhi High Court ruled Friday that it could not delay his release under current laws.
The prisoner, only a teenager when the attack took place, is due to be released on Sunday. This has prompted an outcry by those who say he should face stiffer punishment for the rape that caused the death of Jyoti Singh.
