NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of three convicts in the Nirbhaya case. The court on Monday rejected the review peition against the apex court's May 2017 order upholding the capital punishment awarded to Mukesh (29), Pawan Gupta (22) and Vinay Sharma (23) by the Delhi court and the trial court in the case of gan rape and murder of a 23-year-old paramedical student on Dec 16, 2012.

Asha Devi, the mother of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim, said "It has been six years since the incident took place. Similar incidents are still taking place every day, our system has failed us. Even after so many years, we see cases of brutal rape and murder of young women. This should stop at the earliest."

She further said the Supreme Court, who will pronounce the verdict later in the day, must not reduce the quantum of punishment given to the accused.

"Even a death penalty is less for all the accused. But the court's verdict must set an example for Indians," she added.
Echoing a similar stance, the victim's father, Badrinath Singh, urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take adequate measures in order to provide safety and security to women in India.
