Indian Govt Hangs Four Men Over Gang-Rape, Murder

National Commission for Women, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said, Nirbhaya has finally got justice and will finally be at peace. The ICJ has also denounced executions and asked India to abolish the death penalty.

After exhausting all their legal options in the last couple of weeks, they were hanged till death.

The victim's family has repeatedly said that the rapists must be given the capital punishment. Further, data and research studies from across the globe reveal that death penalty does not act as a deterrent to crimes against women and children, especially sexual crimes.

The hearing was deferred by the family court here after the counsel for the petitioner, Puneeta Devi, submitted that she has left for Delhi for a last meeting with Akshay Singh who faces the gallows on Friday. The accused has now been sentenced to life imprisonment.

'She wants to divorce him first'. He is however now out on bail.

The case pertained to the gruesome gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl by six men in a moving bus on the fateful night of December 16, 2012. It called on the Government to introduce systemic changes to the legal system that would deter violence and improve access to justice for women.

India "has given a strong message to rapists that if you commit this crime you will be hanged", tweeted Swati Maliwal, chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women.

The ICJ opposes capital punishment in all cases without exception as a violation of right to life and to freedom from cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment.

A trial court in Delhi, which had already postponed the hangings three times, on Thursday dismissed another plea to delay the executions scheduled for 5:30 am (0000 GMT) Friday. The men were sentenced to death in September of 2013, five months after the new anti-rape law was passed.

To this, the bench said only in India courts are so accessible as the convicts have moved the trial court, Supreme Court and the high court on the same day.

The authorities also updated the law to allow the death sentence for repeat rape offenders. "Send them to the India-Pakistan border, send them to Doklam (at the border with China), but don't hang them", pleaded the lawyer of Akshay Thakur.

But for Krishnan, the executions masked the continued failure to provide justice and improve safety for women in the world's biggest democracy.

At the end of 2017, there were nearly 150,000 rape cases pending trial in India's labyrinthine legal system. In some cases, they have compounded the problem. Accused identified by the police.

Dec 29, 2012 - The victim dies in a hospital in Singapore after battling serious internal injuries.
