The packed court applauded as Supreme Court today (May 5) upheld the death sentence for four convicts – Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Mukesh Singh ? in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case in 2012. The Nirbhaya rape-cum-murder case is rarest of rare case and we are compelled to give extreme punishment to ensure justice, said the apex court. The Supreme Court after delivering the order said, The brutal, barbaric, and demoniacal conduct of the convicts shook the conscience of humanity and they don’t deserve leniency.

Leave the Supreme Court, even God will not forgive such people. They will be awarded death sentence, said Nirbhaya’s father Badri Singh. Adding further, Nirbhayas mother Asha Devi, ahead of the hearing today said, Only the death penalty (will do) for culprits now, it should not be denied. 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.

However, the convicts lawyer AP Singh had a dissenting view. He was of the view that the Supreme Court can’t hang someone just to send a message to society and feels that the human rights have been slaughtered today. He said, Justice is not done, we will file a review petition after reading the order.

The incident shook the nation when the 23-year-old Jyoti Singh (Nirbhaya), physiotherapy intern, on December 16 was gang raped and brutally beaten to death by these four convicts with an iron rod on a moving bus in Delhi.

The MLC member was present in the house during the proceedings of the legislative council. While the house was in session, Rathod was watching adult content on his smartphone.
However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
This was not the first time in Karnataka that such an incident had happened.
