Commenting on the Supreme Court’s verdict dismissing review pleas filed by three convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape case, counsel of the convicts on Monday said injustice has been done to the “children”.
“Justice should be served to everyone. Injustice has been done to the children (convicts). This decision has come due to political, public & media pressure,” news agency ANI quoted AP Singh, counsel of the three accused of 2012 Delhi gang-rape case, as saying. Counsel had filed a review petition in the Supreme Court.
The apex court dismissed review pleas filed by three of the four convicts seeking a reduction of their death sentence to a life term. It upheld its earlier order of the death sentence.
Commenting on the verdict father of the victim said that he knew that review petition will be dismissed.
“We knew that review petition will be dismissed. But what next? So much time has gone by & threat to women have gone up in this span. I believe sooner they're hanged, better it is,” said Badrinath Singh, father of the victim.
“Our struggle does not end here. Justice is getting delayed. It's affecting other daughters of the society. I request judiciary to tighten their judicial system, serve justice to Nirbhaya by hanging them as soon as possible & help other girls & women,” said Asha Devi, mother of 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim.
