Finally, after five years of wait, the justice has prevailed, in Nirbhaya Delhi gang-rape case. A 23-year-old student, Jyoti was gang-raped and tortured on her way back home in Delhi in December 2012.
The verdict in the Nirbhaya gangrape case was pronounced by the Supreme Court yesterday. The court has announced death penalty to four of the men, who were held guilty of raping and torturing a medical student on a moving bus in Delhi.
While the entire nation kept debating over the death sentence given to the four rapists, members of the Hindi film fraternity have given a thumbs up to the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Nirbhaya rape case which took place in 2012. Some feel that justice has prevailed while there are others who want a “public hanging”.
And post the decision, Bollywood stars reacted on Twitter. Here is what they had to say:

The Supreme Court confirmed the death sentence awarded to the four convicts in the December 16, 2012 sensational gangrape and murder case, terming it the ‘rarest of rare’, most brutal, barbaric and diabolical attack on the 23-year-old paramedic student.
The case sent a “tsunami of shock” all over, the apex court said, adding that the convicts treated the victim as an object of enjoyment, with the single purpose of ravishing her. A three-judge bench, through a unanimous verdict, upheld the Delhi High Court judgement which had concurred with the trial court decision.
On the other side, Nirbhaya’s father says, finally, he’ll get some sleep now. “I will sleep peacefully tonight,” he said, adding, “She would have turned 28 on May 10 if she had lived. Today’s verdict is a gift for her.”
