FUNDS AND DEATH PENALTY GRANTED, STILL NO JUSTICE TO NIRBHAYA
Correspondent – Delhi Bureau
New Delhi, December 16:
The nation is still crying on the 2nd anniversary of 16th December Gang Rape, where a 23-year-old physiotherapy student was brutally gang raped by six men, including a juvenile, in a bus.
The case brought the capital and the system under the limelight questioning the government and Delhi Police about the safety of every woman in the state. But after two years the case is still pending in Supreme Court and the nation is waiting for the final verdict. Though the four adults accused in the case were awarded death penalty on September 13, 2013, with the Delhi High Court upholding the death penalty in March 2014.
The family of the victim, earlier in Monday, urged the judiciary to expedite the court proceedings to grant justice in the December 16 gang rape case, and stated that they were still waiting for the courts to grant them justice.
“Whenever I look at her photo, I am not able to look into her eyes because we haven’t been able get her justice. I request the court to speed-up the process and grant justice. After the incident I feel that the society has awakened, every day we see something or the other being done about women safety. It is our system which needs to wake up,” the victim’s father told, as per reports.
The government on other hand has to say that they have a 1000cr Nirbhaya fund but due to poor and feeble system and lack of good prosecutors, the fast track courts are going in its slowest pace.
