India executes four men over bus gang rape, murder

 

After seven years of seeking justice, the family of an Indian lady who was ganged raped and murdered inside a bus by four Indian men finally got justice.

The four men who carried out the brutal gang rape and murdered their victim in a bus in Delhi in 2012, have been convicted and executed.

The men, Akshay Thakur, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta, and Mukesh Singh were found guilty in a 2013 trial and sentenced to death by hanging, but their execution had been postponed multiple times due to appeals.

All the four were hanged at dawn on Friday in the capital’s high-security Tihar prison with hundreds gathered outside the prison gates, shouting “death to rapists”.

“It took seven years but justice was delivered,” said Delhi chief minister Arwind Kejriwal.

It was the first time in five years that capital punishment has been carried out in India.

The victim, a 23-year-old physiotherapy student who the Indian press christened, Nirbhaya, meaning fearless, was gang-raped on a moving bus and left for dead on a roadside in December 2012. She died in a hospital in Singapore two weeks after the attack.

At that time, six people were arrested for the attack. One of them, Ram Singh, was found dead in jail in March 2013, having apparently taken his own life.

Another, who was 17 at the time of the attack, was released in 2015 after serving three years in a reform facility, the maximum term possible for a juvenile in India.

Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi, who had campaigned for her daughter’s murderers to be hanged, said that “today is dedicated to daughters of the country”.

“As soon as I returned from Supreme Court, I hugged the picture of my daughter and said today you got justice,” said Devi.

“I thank the judiciary and government. Our wait for justice was painful and agonising,” added Nibhaya’s father.

    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    someone!

  27. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
