In principle I am against death penalty, but this was such a heinous crime that strictest punishment was needed. Brinda Karat, CPIM

Delhi Police's investigation stands vindicated, its an important verdict: Deependra Pathak, Delhi Police Spokesperson

We are not seeing as a deterrent. Truth is that most rapists get away with crime. We have to go beyond this case. Every rape case is gruesome. Better forensics and investigation is needed. Much more needs to be done. Rapes still happening in the country: Kalpana Vishwananth

May 05, 2017 15:11 (IST)

Strong message was needed to be delivered. Message had to go to prospective rapists also. Death penalty is right. I am happy SC has upheld death penalty. This was a tight case with all evidences: Abha Singh 

May 05, 2017 15:06 (IST)

I am very happy with death sentence in the Nirbhaya case. This was overdue and should have been done long back. I disagree to Indira's Jaising's opinion: Justice Usha Mehra

Judges go by merit of the case not by media trial as alleged by lawyer of those convicted. Lawyer AP Singh's comment is stupid. Legal options available are curative petitions, mercy plea to President: Justice Usha Mehra

May 05, 2017 15:05 (IST)

Supreme Court rightly convicted them. Death penalty should not have been given. Life sentence was okay in the end. When you give life imprisonment you give a chance to improve. We must stay away from rarest of rare discussion: Advocate Indira Jaising

May 05, 2017 15:03 (IST)

Now a fresh date of execution will be announced: Advocate BL Kapur

May 05, 2017 15:02 (IST)

I am very happy that SC had listened to our pain and given justice to us. We are very happy that SC heard our plea. Now no regret that it was delayed. We want they should be hanged soon: Nirbhaya's father 

Justice has finally been done: Nirbhaya’s Mother 

May 05, 2017 15:00 (IST)

Justice not done, we will file review petition after reading the order: AP Singh, Lawyer of convicts 

May 05, 2017 14:59 (IST)

Investigation was cautious and long. Siddharth Luthra had submitted that the investigation was flawless whereas the counsel for the accused had tried to prove that investigation was biased.

We have taken into consideration the point of view of the Amicus and all the counsel involved.

- If this case isn't rarest of rare to award death penalty, then which case can fall under it: Justice R Banumathi

- Justice Bhanumati said that there should be systematic education of children to ensure how they will give respect to women

- Justice Bhanumati quoted Swami Vivekanand on how should tradition enrich society with knowledge and understanding to ensure justice for women

- Crime against women not only affects women’s self esteem and dignity but also degrades the pace of societal development. I hope that this gruesome incident in the capital and death of this young woman will be an eye-opener for a mass movement “to end violence against women” and “respect for women and her dignity” and sensitizing public at large on gender justice: Justice Bhanumati

May 05, 2017 14:39 (IST)

- Scientific evidence like DNA profiling of victim and accused proves to the hilt about their presence at the crime spot: SC

- Convicts treated victim as an object of enjoyment, with single purpose of ravishing her: SC

May 05, 2017 14:38 (IST)

Aggravating circumstances outweigh mitigating circumstances in the case; offence created "tsunami of shock": SC

Convicts' background, age, no criminal record, good behaviour in prison cannot outweigh aggravating circumstances: SC

The grotesque behavior of the accused, the way they forced the victim for anal sex, oral sex is proven by the bite marks. There was insertion of rod in her private parts and intestine was ruptured. 

May 05, 2017 14:30 (IST)

Parents and lawyers clapped in the courtroom after the verdict 

May 05, 2017 14:29 (IST)
