Four convicts in Nirbhaya gangrape case hanged to death
Delhi High Court and Supreme Court last night dismissed a last-minute plea by the convicts, paving the way for the execution. This is for the first time that four men were hanged together in Tihar Jail.
Nirbhaya, a para-medic student, was gangraped by six men in a moving bus in South West Delhi in December 2012. One of the accused killed himself in jail and the sixth- a juvenile – was released from a reformation home after serving a three-year term. Reacting to the development, Nirbhaya’s mother thanked Indian judiciary for doing justice to Nirbhaya and millions of women across the country
