DCW questions delay in punishment of Nirbhaya case perpetrators

The Delhi Commission for Woman (DCW) has issued a notice to Tihar Jail Administration and Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) South District for delaying the death penalty awarded to Nirbhaya rapists.

Asha Devi, Nirbhaya’s mother had complained to the DCW, asking why the criminals have not been hanged as per the Supreme Court order, which came five months earlier.

The Apex court had earlier sentenced the all the four convicts with a death penalty for the gruesome incident of rape that shook the nation in 2012.

The DCW Chairperson, Swati Jaihind responded to the mother’s plea by immediately sending a notice to Tihar Jail administration and DCP South District, reported news agency ANI.

In the notice, she has inquired as to why, even after five months of Supreme Court’s verdict, the accused have not been hanged. She also mentioned whether the Tihar Jail officials have issued order of death sentence to the four accused. If the order has been issued, then reasons for not adhering to the order.

The Commission has notified the officials and DCP to respond to the aforementioned inquiries by November 6.

Further DCW’s Chairperson stated that, it is a shame that even Nirbhaya is yet to receive justice in our country. Nirbhaya’s mother and the entire nation who are pleading for justice are yet to receive it. She demanded that the convicts must be hanged at the earliest.

On December 16, 2012, the entire country was shocked by the horrific Nirbhaya gang rape and murder in South Delhi. The Supreme Court upheld death sentence for the four convicts months ago.
