Nirbhaya’s rape case had ignited a national outrage and on Friday Supreme Court upheld the death sentences of all four convicts involved in the horrifying crime.
Many celebrities took to social network to express themselves. Priyanka Chopra took on to twitter to share her opinion, “ Yes, it has taken five long years, but today justice finally prevailed. The flame of this verdict should singe not just the dastardly four (of the other two, one is dead and one accused is a juvenile) but such perpetrators in India as well. I’m so proud of the justice system for hearing her voice.. in her dying declaration she appealed that her perpetrators not be spared.”
She further added, “Justice – that is what an entire country demanded five years ago and never let the nation forget. Each voice that joined the battle was strident and clear – the six must be punished. Finally, they will pay.”
“Unfortunately, the past can never be undone. So, we move on and make a promise to ourselves. That when an entire country is unified in wanting something, action is taken. This awakening, this unified voice to stop such brutal and demonical crimes, as our supreme court said, is what we must never let go onto mute mode,” she highlighted.
At last she mentioned, “You will never be forgotten, Nirbhaya”
