Welfare officers and counselors at a correctional facility that holds the juvenile accused in the December 16 Delhi gangrape case say the now 20-year-old is a changed person and the home’s most disciplined inmate.

Authorities say he has turned religious, is growing a beard and offering namaz five times a day. He is observing the Ramzan fast too.

Set to walk-free in six months, the boy convicted of raping and killing a 23-year-old woman in Delhi, doesn’t want to leave the “safety” of the reform home he has spent the last two-and-a-half-years in, afraid he will be “lynched” the moment he steps outside.
