Nirbhaya gangrape convicts(दोषियों) to be hanged, confirms Supreme Court
The Supreme Court on Friday confirmed the death sentence awarded by the Delhi High Court to the four convicts in the December 16 gangrape case. The bench comprising Justice Dipak Misra, R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan heard the plea by the four convicts – Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur. The top court said the act ‘demonstrates perversion(विकृति) of the accused’ and added that if any case warrants a death sentence, it’s this one. The court added that criminal conspiracy allegations against the convicts stand established. The mother of the victim had earlier expressed confidence that the top court will uphold the High Court order. Speaking to news agency ANI, she said, “We have full faith in the judicial system and I am sure that the Supreme Court will announce death sentence in its verdict for the guilty. I am sure the Supreme Court will give justice to my daughter. This will set an example for the world.” The victim’s father added, “Leave Supreme Court, even God will not forgive such people.”
