Nirbhaya rapists get death; Supreme Court upholds HC verdict

The Supreme Court today upheld the verdict of the High Court in the Nirbhaya rape case, ordering the rapists to be hanged till death. The 4 convicts are Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur. They had raped and tortured 23-year old Nirbhaya, who was a physiotherapy student and was going back home when the incident happened. The Supreme Court reacted strongly to the heinous crime and said that acts like this do not belong to this world. Calling the crime brutal and demonic, the three-judge Supreme Court bench pronounced the death verdict for all the four accused. While confirming the order for the rapists to be hanged, the bench said, “If ever a case called for hanging, this was it.”

The verdict has been hailed by people and prominent personalities as well. Speaking about the verdict, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas tweeted, “बहन #Nirbhaya हम शर्मिंदा हैं कि हम सबके रहते ऐसा हुआ। ईश्वर तुम्हारी आत्मा को संतोष दे कि निर्मम गुनाहगारों को आख़िर उचित सज़ा मिली।” Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Chairperson Swati Maliwal said, “DCW welcomes SC decision. Finally, justice was delayed but not denied. Nirbhaya’s rapist will be served death penalty now.” Union Minister Maneka Gandhi said, “I am happy that the verdict has been upheld though I wish it had come sooner.”
