Chhawla Case: Challenging the release of gangrape convicts, LG of Delhi approves the petition



2012 Chhawla gangrape murder case: A review petition will be filed against the Supreme Court’s order acquitting three convicts in the 2012 Chawla gangrape murder case. Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena has approved the filing of a review petition on behalf of the Delhi government. Recently, the Supreme Court had ordered the release of three death row convicts in this case. Along with approving the review petition, Delhi LG VK Saxena has also approved the appointment of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati to represent the government in the case.

Let us tell you that earlier this month, a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court headed by former Chief Justice UU Lalit had ordered the release of the three convicts in the Chhawla gangrape murder case. In its order to acquit the convicts, the Supreme Court had said, “On a thorough assessment of the circumstances and taking into account the evidence on record, it is difficult to say that the prosecution has proved the accused guilty by cogent evidence.”
