“Her last words were ‘burn them alive’, she should get justice”: Lawyer who filed PIL to execute Nirbhaya’s rapists

The SC had upheld the Delhi HC's verdict of the death penalty to Nirbhaya's rapists in May 2017.

Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava has filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking the execution of the death penalty awarded to the convicts in Nirbhaya rape and murder case. As per reports, the lawyer has appealed the apex court to issue directions to the central government to execute the death penalty awarded to all convicts within two weeks from the listing of the case.

The apex court has reportedly admitted the PIL. Confirming the report, advocate Srivastava has stated that Nirbhaya’s last words before she succumbed to her injuries were, “Burn them alive”. He has added even after 6 long years of committing the barbaric act that resulted in the death of the innocent victim, the perpetrators are still alive. He has pledged that Nirbhaya should get justice before 16 December 2018. The incident had occurred on 16 December 2012.

It is notable here that the Supreme Court had, in July this year, rejected the review petition for the death penalty of three of the four living convicts of the Nirbhaya rape and murder case. The court has stated that they will hang. Six people, namely Ram Singh, Pawan Gupta, Akshay Singh, Vinay Sharma, Mukesh, and an alleged juvenile were convicted of the heinous rape and murder of Delhi student Nirbhaya (not her real name) inside a moving bus in the national capital.

Ram Singh had committed suicide inside the jail. The alleged juvenile was released after a three-year prison sentence. One of the four remaining convicts, Akshay Singh had not filed a review petition.

Nirbhaya was brutally raped in the most barbaric manner and was left to die on the road. She was later sent for treatment to Singapore but had succumbed to her injuries. The case had generated widespread public outrage both nationally and internationally and has made a huge impact in the psyche of the nation.

The case made a profound impact on the Indian legal system and led to the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, known as the Nirbhaya Act which ensured harsher punishment for sexual violence against women. The Supreme Court had in May 2017, upheld the death penalty awarded to the convicts by the Delhi HC.
