Hey Nirbhaya! We are late, but we did it! those animals who were responsible for your injustice were hanged and sent to hell today on 20-3-2020, this day will be marked as the day every man with cruel intensions will fear.
Seven years after this young medical student was gang-raped and tortured on a moving bus in Delhi, a crime that shocked the whole of India, but now four of her killers were hanged at 5.30 am on Friday. The pre-dawn execution took place less than two hours after the Supreme Court dismissed the final petition of the convicts, which they wanted to move their punishments even further due to corona.
The convicts had also petitioned the Delhi High Court, where their lawyer cited the coronavirus for the lack of proper documents for a hurriedly-filed appeal to escape the death penalty. But justice won after 7 years and they were hanged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, where they hardly slept and refused a last meal or any last wish, said officials. One of them begged for his life as he was led to the gallows for hanging.
The entire jail was on lockdown since the previous night, and officials said that a very few other prisoners in Asia’s largest prison facility could sleep a wink ahead of the first execution since 2015, after five years. The convicts were woken at 3.30 am, around the time they learned they had reached the end of the road in courts, this will serve a warning to those who try to take advantage over a girl’s weakness and dominate her body with his strength. Redoact still believes women should be given proper rights to report the cruelty she’s going through without any fear.
Only when the voices rise, the lights shine and the darkness will go as will the fear.
