Delhi Gangrape: Five years on Nirbhaya still awaits justice
New Delhi : Five years have passed to a horrific night when Nirbhaya was gangraped brutally in a moving bus in Delhi. And the victim girl, who had lost her life to the injuries, is still waiting for the justice.
The Supreme Court has awarded death sentence to four convicts — Mukesh, Pawan, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Kumar Singh — in the brutal December 16, 2012 gangrape and murder case.
Review petition of one of the convicts will be heard in January.
Remembering the brutal Nirbhaya gang rape case in Delhi on its fifth year, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday called for making a safe society.
"Remembering #Nirbhaya on the fifth anniversary of brutal Delhi incident. We cannot compensate her loss but let us resolve to keep our society safe," Banerjee tweeted.
The 23-year-old paramedical student was brutally gang raped inside a moving bus in Delhi on December 16, 2012, which led to her death due to internal injuries 13 days later in a Singapore hospital.
The rapists, six in all, pounced on the young woman who had boarded the bus with her male friend to go home after seeing a movie.
After committing the crime, they dumped both on the side of a road. Later, some onlookers alerted the police. The sheer brutality of the crime led to nationwide revulsion and street protests.
