“Forgive The Convicts, Don’t Ask For Death Penalty,” Says Indira Jaising To Nirbhaya’s Mother

Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court of India, Indira Jaising took to her official handle on Twitter early morning yesterday (January 17, 2020) to advice Nirbhaya’s mother to forgive the four convicts and not seek their execution. 

“While I fully identify with the pain of Asha Devi I urge her to follow the example of Sonia Gandhi who forgave Nalini and said she didn’t not want the death penalty for her. We are with you but against death penalty,” Jaising was quoted tweeting.

Nirbhaya’s mother, Asha Devi was quick to respond to Jaising’s comment today (January 18, 2020) lashing out at her asking who was she and how dare she give her such a suggestion when the entire country wants justice to be served in the form of death of the convicts who had brutally raped and murdered her daughter. She said it was because of people like Jaising that justice is not served to rape victims in India. 

After the postponement of the execution of the four convicts, by the Patiala House court of Delhi yesterday, Asha Devi was seen expressing disappointment in the system that gives so many chances to such culprits who do not deserve a second chance.

The four convicts Akshay, Mukesh, Pawan and Vinay had gang-raped and murdered a 23 year old woman in a moving bus in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi. The paramedic student was raped on the intervening night of December 16, 2012, inside a running bus in south Delhi by six persons and severely assaulted before being thrown out on the road. She died on December 29, 2012, at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore, where she was airlifted from Delhi for treatment.
