A Delhi Court today dismissed Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy's petition, wherein Swamy had appealed to the Juvenile Justice Board that no leniency should be shown towards the 6th accused, who claims to be a juvenile in the Delhi gangrape case. The board, presided over by principal magistrate Geetanjali Goel has reserved the rights to prosecute the accused as a juvenile, until it decides on his age on January 28, after the accused produced his school certificate as proof that he is a minor. Swamy had filed a petition yesterday that no leniency be shown towards the accused, who claims to be a juvenile, because of the brutal nature of the crime.
