SC sends Nirbhaya rape convicts to the gallows

Nirbhaya's parents talk on phone at the Supreme Court in New Delhi on Friday. The apex court has confirmed death sentence for the four convicts of Nirbhaya gang rape case who raped and tortured the 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in Delhi

"If ever a case called for hanging, this was it", said the three-judge Bench.

“What about justice for others whose cases are pending in courts?” Singh asked. This verdict sentenced Vinay Sharma (23), Akshay Thakur (31), Mukesh (29) and Pawan Gupta (22) to death.The court offered them the death penalty.

Describing it as a crime of "mental perversion and extreme brutality" where in intestines of the victim were "perforated in the most savage and inhuman manner", Justice Misra said: "It sounds like a story from a different world humanity has been treated with irreverence". However, Badrianth, the victim's father was sure his plea would be answered and the convicts would be hanged.

In 2013, a year after the horrific gangrape of a 23- year-old physiotherapy intern, 1,636 rape cases were reported and the number subsequently increased to 2,166 and 2,199 in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

The man reportedly denied using the phrase. "Thankfully, we didn't have any more problems for the rest of the game". Hennick, 35, was sitting at the game with his father-in-law, who is black, and his 6-year-old son.

When women do report rapes, police often refuse to file charges and pressure the victims to reach a compromise with their attackers.

As the bus moved on south Delhi roads, the convicts pulled out her internal organs with a rusted L-shaped iron rod used with a wheel jack.

The woman died of intestinal injuries two weeks later in a Singapore hospital, where she been taken for specialized treatment. A child should be taught to respect women in the society in the same way as he is taught to respect men.

She opined that when the crime is brutal, shocking the collective conscience of the community, sympathy in any form would be misplaced and it would shake the confidence of public in the administration of the criminal justice system.

Officers at the National Intelligence Service were said to have trained the man, providing him with $20,000 and a satellite transmitter-receiver.

One of the accused, Ram Singh, had allegedly committed suicide in the Tihar Jail, while a convicted juvenile was sentenced three years of punishment in a reform home.

Manchu Lakshmi who is popular for raising her voice against the crime, said on Saturday, "Though the accused in Nirbhaya rape and murder case are indulged in crime but it was not correct to sentence them to death".

Devi said she was happy that justice has finally been done.

In the Supreme Court's almost 430-page ruling, its lone female justice urged India to do more to sensitize the public to attacks on women and to make gender equality a priority. This inhuman incident filled the whole country with rage and utter despair, and the justice for Nirbhaya, India's daughter, became the only voice of the nation.

The apex court said the convicts had treated the victim as an object of enjoyment, with the single goal of ravishing her.
