Still waiting for justice after two years: Dec 16 gang-rape victim's mother
On the second death anniversary of the December 16 gang-rape, 'Nirbhaya's' mother on Tuesday said that her daughter is yet to get justice.
New Delhi: On the second death anniversary of the December 16 gang-rape, 'Nirbhaya's' mother on Tuesday said that her daughter is yet to get justice.
“It has been two years since the incident took place. However, our daughter has still not got justice,” she told ANI.
Despite implementation of various laws by the government to prevent crime against women, she said that nothing has changed.
“Nothing has changed. People have no fear of judiciary. If the laws have been amended then they are not being implemented effectively,” she further said.
The horrific incident took place on December 16, 2012 when the 23-year-old paramedic student was gang-raped by six men, including a juvenile, in a moving bus in the national capital.
She later succumbed to her fatal injuries in a Singapore hospital.
The four accused - Akshay Thakur, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Mukesh – were awarded death penalty by a fast-track court in 2013 which was later upheld by Delhi court.
One of the six accused was found dead in a cell in Delhi's Tihar Jail.
A juvenile involved in the crime was on August 31, 2013 sent by the Juvenile Justice Board to a reform home for three years, the maximum term under the juvenile law.
