Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra writes an emotional post after the verdict on Nirbhaya gang rape case.
Finally, after five years of wait, the justice has prevailed, in Nirbhaya Delhi gang-rape case. A 23-year-old student, Jyoti was gang-raped and tortured on her way back home in Delhi in December 2012. The court has announced death penalty to four of the men, who were held guilty of raping and torturing a 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in Delhi.
From Rishi Kapoor to Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu and other celebrities applauded the verdict. Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who is riding high on success with her Hollywood stint, also wrote an emotional letter after Supreme Court’s verdict.
Here’s what she wrote:
“Yes, it has taken five long years, but today justice finally prevailed. The flame of this verdict should singe not just the dastardly four (of the other two, one is dead and one accused is a juvenile) but such perpetrators in India as well,” she wrote in her big note on twitter.
“I’m so proud of the justice system for hearing her voice.. in her dying declaration she appealed that her perpetrators not be spared,” she added.
“Unfortunately, the past can never be undone. So, we move on and make a promise to ourselves. That when an entire country is unified in wanting something, action is taken. This awakening, this unified voice to stop such brutal and demonical crimes, as our supreme court said, is what we must never let go onto mute mode.”
“You will never be forgotten, Nirbhaya,” she concluded.

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