On Friday, the Apex Court of India upheld the death penalty for the four convicts Akshay, Pawan, Vinay Sharma and Mukesh for the 2012 gang-rape and murder case of Nirbhaya. While delivering the order, the Supreme Court said-“The Nirbhaya rape-cum-murder case is rarest of the rare case and we are compelled to give extreme punishment to ensure justice.”
The court also stated-“The brutal, barbaric and demoniacal conduct of the convicts shook the conscience of humanity and they don’t deserve leniency.”
Several reactions are following the verdict by the Supreme Court. Where a majority of population is applauding the decision, on the other hand some are still not satisfied with the judgement.
