Image of Asia: Opposing release of young Delhi rape convict

In this photo by Saurabh Das, the mother of a woman killed in a shocking gang rape on a New Delhi bus in 2012 arrives at a protest against the release of one of the attackers. The man was short of his 18th birthday at the time of the crime and finished his three-year term in a reform home on Sunday. The Delhi High Court on Friday had rejected a petition to extend the man's term. Appeals of the death sentences imposed on four other attackers are pending in the Supreme Court.
