"The flame of this verdict should singe not just the dastardly four but other such perpetrators in India as well", Chopra said in an open letter. The ruling that was delivered by apex court this evening is being celebrated across the nation.

"I will only say that nirbhaya has got justice if no other woman gets raped after this verdict", she said. "We can not have one state awarding death sentence and another life imprisonment", he added. The attackers repeatedly raped the woman, after luring her and a male friend onto the bus.

"It is the certainty of conviction rather than the awarding of death sentence which is important". The only thing that makes us feel sad why this decision is taken so late.

"Those who did this to me, do not spare them" - These were the words that police officer Chaya Sharma heard from Nirbhaya, the young student gang-raped on a moving bus and tortured with an iron rod in December 2012. Though we have lost our daughter, we are satisfied that the court has awarded death sentence to her perpetrators.

That justice, R. Banumathi, also revisited elements of the case that she said affirmed the "rarest of rare" classification that demands the death penalty.

Varun Dhawan shared, "Even hanging the 4 criminals is not enough justice but it should serve as a reminder that how india deals with this crime #Nirbhayaverdict".

Defence lawyer AP Singh, representing three of the men, said the court should have given them a chance to reform and avoided the death penalty.

"Human rights have been slaughtered today", he said, adding that they will file a review petition after reading the order as the justice is not done. In the same vein, Prof Sadhna Singh of DG Girls' College stated that this decision of the Supreme Court would desist people of perverted mindset from committing such crimes.
