Justice has finally been served Nirbhaya
What happened in December of 2012 shook our country to its core, The Nirbhaya Case.
A young woman, a budding medical student was raped brutally and left to die on the side of the road.
Soon after, 4 were convicted but it has been a long battle since then. The convicted were sentenced to death but they put-out plea deals after plea deals which had delayed their hanging till today.
But justice has finally prevailed after a judge rejected a last-minute plea filed by one of the convicts seeking a review on their case and the 4 main assailants – Akshay Kumar Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma, and Mukesh Singh – were hanged simultaneously at 5:30 am on 20th March 2020 at Delhi’s Tihar Jail. The convicts’ bodies were sent for post-mortem examinations after which their remains will be handed over to the respective families
