New Delhi, Mar 20: “Women will now feel safe and families will start teaching their boys that the punishment for such a crime will be severe,” said Asha Devi, the mother of Nirbhaya, a medical student who was gangraped and murdered on a running bus in the city in 2012.
“Der se hi sahi par insaaf mila (delayed though, but we got justice),” said Devi after the execution of four convicts in the case at the Tihat Jail at wee hours this morning.
Asha Devi, after fighting for seven-long-years, said that she will always regret for not being able to save her daughter.
“Jab tak hum sehte rahenge, tab tak humare sath crime hota rahega (Crimes against woman will keep happening as long as we keep tolerating them),” she said appealing to the people to support the victim of any such crime and report it to the police.
Nirbhaya’s father also said “It is the duty of each father to look out for their children”.
The lawyer for Nirbhaya’s family, Seema Kushwaha, said, “We feel sad that we could not save her and such an incident happened in the country’s capital city”.
