Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Bhumi Pednekar and other actresses applaud SC Verdict on Nirbhaya Rape case
The events that unfolded on the night of December 16, 2012 left the entire nation in shock as a well-educated 23 year old girl fell prey to six rapists. She was beaten, raped and even tortured in a private bus. The brutality of the incident that were reported later not only made the nation tremble but India as a country joined hands to bring justice for Jyoti Singh Pandey, aka Nirbhaya. Now six years, after the case, the Supreme Court has passed a landmark judgement to hang the rapists and heres how Bollywood extended its support. After a long battle, Nirbhaya aka Jyoti Singhs death created a furore followed by activists constantly pressurizing the government to take severe action against rapists including death penalty. Although the actual sentence for rape is a seven year imprisonment, the Supreme Court decided to deviate from it owing to the heinous and brutal ways Jyoti was tortured during the rape in 2012, followed by which the Supreme Court sentenced them to death by hanging. Two days ago, the Supreme Court passed yet another judgement for all the rapists except the one juvenile who was involved in the case and the one who died in 2013 [possibly committed suicide] wherein it quashed the plea for reducing the sentence to lifetime imprisonment. Coming out in support of the verdict, many Bollywood actresses took to Twitter to support the court in this landmark judgement: Priyanka Chopra Justice delayed but not denied the Supreme Court of India sends out a strong signal to perpetrators of these heinous crimes. Now, justice for the rest, so that we have no more Nirbhayas https://twitter.com/hashtag/NirbhayaVerdict?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #NirbhayaVerdict PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) https://twitter.com/priyankachopra/status/1016401250659766272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw July 9, 2018 Anushka Sharma Her pain lives in us all. https://twitter.com/hashtag/NirbhayaVerdict?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw #NirbhayaVerdict ????????
