SC to decide verdict on Nirbhaya gangrape case over 4 convicts today

Tahlka News Bureau
New Delhi: Supreme Court will decide on Friday on the petitions of the four convicts who have challenged their death penalty in gangrape case in 2012 who have raped a 23 year old girl.

Victim parents said we are sure the justice will be done to our daughter the apex court will award death penalty to all the convicted.

Nirbhaya's mother said she is having full faith in the judiciary and to the apex court, i have a full trust they will give justice to my daughter.

"We have full faith in the judicial system and I am sure that the Supreme Court will announce death sentence in its verdict for the guilty. I am sure the Supreme Court will give justice to my daughter. This will set an example for the world," said Nirbhaya's mother.

Nirbhaya's father also said that he is sure of the fact that the apex court will award death sentence to the convicts.
"They will be awarded death sentence. Leave Supreme Court, even God will not forgive such people," said Nirbhaya's father.

The bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra and consisting of Justices R. Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan.
The convicted Akshay, Pawan, Vinay Sharma and Mukesh had challenged the Delhi High Court order which had sentenced them to death penalty.

Earlier, the trial court also had sentenced all the four convicts to death penalty.

It is being expected that the Supreme Court would not grant relief to the accused as Justice Dipak Misra doesn't hesitate to give a death sentence and is exceedingly sensitive to women's rights and liberties.

He has upheld rape as depravity and not curable and recently, passed a woman friendly judgement saying that "no woman can be compelled to love she always has right to say no".

One of the accused, Ram Singh had hanged himself in prison, while another person, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime, was convicted in August last year and will serve the maximum sentence of three years in a reform home.

The 23-year-old was brutally assaulted and raped by six persons on a moving bus in South Delhi and thrown out of the vehicle with her male friend on the night of December 16, 2012.

later, she died in a Singapore hospital on December 29, 2012.
