The juvenile was tried under the Juvenile Justice Act, and was held on December 16, 2012 with five other guys for the savage rape and murder of the girl paramedical pupil. He released on Sunday after finishing his sentence, amid demonstrations from the parents of the victim among others in the national capital, and was set in a remand home for 3 years.
“I don’t know this yet, I will tell you honestly. I am not going to answer anything which is a serious issue on a platform like this. And I would be on a platform to answer questions like this after I understand it myself,” Sharukh said at a media conference here where he was with his co-star Kajol promoting the film “Dilwale”.
“At this point of time, I believe it is completely a wrong place, wrong time to be on a film platform promoting a film, talking to people here, mostly entertainment journalists, and then getting to a serious issue like this. So please excuse me. I speak for Kajol too,” said the actor, who was recently in news for comments on intolerance.
