One of the people convicted for the Nirbhaya gang rape case was released on Sunday after serving his three-year term — the maximum term for minors in India.
The 2012 gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh brought attention to sexual violence against women in Indian society. It was also the subject of a BBC documentary that was banned in India.
Protesters gathered in Delhi on Sunday, including Singh's parents.
