Mum: Gangrape accused learn tailoring
Mumbai, Sept 11: What punishment does a juvenile undergo for committing a rape? Not life imprisonment, not 10 years in jail not even rigourous punishment; its tailoring classes.

While the enitre nation is demanding death penalty for the Delhi gangrape accused, the two juveniles arrested for gangrapes at Shakti Mills are learning tailoring in the Umerkhadi Observation Home, where they have been kept since their arrest.

The duo have been kept with seven other minor, who have also been arrested for grave offences.

An official from the home said that they (minors) are given a choice to choose any course they want to during school hours. They chose tailoring and are being given lessons in that.

Among the other seven juveniles, one is the pizza delivery boy, who had raped a woman in Worli a month ago.

"Children who have committed graver offences can have a negative impact on the other minors who have been involved in a lesser crimes. Hence they are separated from the others," the official said.

What is striking to notice is that in most of the cases the family members come forth and demand for bail but in this case (two minors accused in the Shakti Mills gangrapes) no family members have come forward asking for a bail.

Both the accused are being kept in a juvenile home for raping a 22-year-old photojournalist and a 19-year-old girl respectively.
