Bhubaneswar, Sept 2:
The state unit of All India Democratic Students’ Organisation (AIDSO) on Monday held a demonstration and protest meeting at Master Canteen square to mark the organisation’s all India protest day demanding stringent punishment to the juvenile recently convicted of raping and killing a Delhi paramedic in a running bus on December 16 last year.
“There is nothing juvenile about rape, torture and murder. It would be a travesty of justice to spare accused on the plea that he is a juvenile. We demand capital punishment for the rape and murder convict,” AIDSO state secretary Shibasis Praharaj said.
Holding party banners and placards, the protestors demanded stringent punishment to perpetrators of rape and murder. They also urged the government to stop the spread of liquor, obscenity and drugs.
