Badrinath Singh the victim's father said his daughter has"finally got justice
On July 9, 2018, the Supreme Court (SC) upheld the verdict of death for the four Nirbhaya gangrape and murder convicts. The fourth convict, Akshay, did not file any review of the May 5, 2017, judgement that had confirmed death sentence awarded to the accused by the Delhi high court.
"By not imposing a death sentence in such cases, the courts may do injustice to the society at large", Banumathi had said in the judgment. Convicts can not be allowed to re-argue a case in the guise of a review plea, said the court.
Jyoti Singh, a physiotherapy student, was raped and left for dead by a gang of five men and a teenager on a bus in the Indian capital New Delhi in December 2012.
The sixth defendant, a minor accused of pulling out part of the woman's intestines with his own hand, was sent to a reform home for three years and has since been released. "I believe sooner they're hanged, better it is", Badrinath Singh, father of 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim quoted as saying. Curative petitions challenging a death penalty can be filed on the grounds that there is evidence the convicts have not put forth in the past.
She succumbed to injuries in September 2013.
The brutal attack prompted widespread protests throughout the country, sparked a new debate about women's safety in India and resulted in strict changes to the country's rape laws which now allows for the death penalty in some rape cases. If this petition is also rejected, a mercy plea would be their last option.
Singh, lawyer of two convicts, Pawan and Vinay told ANI he is hopeful that his clients would get justice.
