“My daughter has got justice,” Nirbhaya’s mother after court issues death warrant to convicts

Mother of 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim today said that the execution of the four convicts in the case will empower the women of the country. She was responding to the death warrant issued by a Delhi Court today to the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case.

Convicts Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh, Pawan Gupta will be hanged at 7am on January 22 in Tihar Jail. Additional Sessions Judges Satish Kumar Arora pronounced the judgment.

“My daughter has got justice,” the victim’s mother Asha Devi said. “This decision will strengthen the trust of people in the judicial system.

Father of Nirbhaya, Badrinath Singh said that the “decision will instil fear in people who commit such crimes.”

Delhi commission for women Chief Swati Maliwal and Punjab Women Commission Chairperson Manisha Gulati also welcomed the decision.

The convicts’ lawyer AP Singh told news agency ANI that they will file a curative petition in the SC in a day or two. He alleged that the probe was not unbiased in the case.

In December 2018, the Supreme Court had rejected the plea to review the death penalty of Akshay Singh. The court had said that the evidence provided by the convict’s lawyers were examined earlier by the trial court.

The 23-year-old physiotherapy girl was gang-raped by six men in Delhi on December 16, 2012. She later died on December 29, 2012 in a hospital in Singapore.

The prime accused, Ram Singh, allegedly committed suicide in Tihar jail. Another accused, who was a minor at that time, was sentenced to a three years’ imprisonment in a reform facility under the Juvenile Justice Act. He was released on December 20, 2015.
