It took time but Nirbhaya got justice:
Nirbhaya case is one of the most shameful cases in India that shocked the country. 16 December 2012 was the date when this disgraceful act happened and after few days the girl painfully lost her life.
The 23 years old was brutally assaulted and gang-raped in a moving bus in South Delhi. Since 2012 thousands of people have come forward and raised their voice for Nirbhaya’s justice. On 4th May 2017, though one of the convicts of Nirbhaya case committed suicide the other was under 18 so after sending him to a juvenile home for three years he was released. But, Supreme Court confirmed the death sentence to other four criminals who were involved. The Delhi High Court had confirmed the death sentence but, three of the convicts challenged the top court and had requested for mercy. But yesterday Supreme Court has rejected the offender’s appeal and has come to a final decision of hanging them till death. This judgment has led to many reactions and along with the general public famous Bollywood stars have also come up with their mixed reactions.
