Ballia, UP, Jan 29: The family of the Delhi gang-rape victim on Monday demanded death penalty for the juvenile accused in the incident and said they would challenge the "unfortunate" decision of the Juvenile Justice Board to treat him as a minor.
"Sazaa kisi sey kam nahin honaa chahiye, chahey woh juvenile hai ya kuchh bhi hai (the punishment should not be less even if he is a juvenile," the 23-year-old paramedical student's father said.
He said the punishment should be equal for all. "Sab ko barabar. Barabar maney phansi (same punishment for all, in other words death sentence)," he said.
