Nirbhaya gang rape: Bollywood hails Supreme Court’s verdict

Justice delayed but not denied. Finally, Nirbhaya got justice. Four of the rapists were sentenced to death by the Supreme Court. The nation rejoices as Nibhaya got the correct justice today.

Bollywood celebrities took to the social media to express their feelings.

Rishi Kapoor# Nirbhaya verdict.Justice prevails.Being in a civil society,in this case,"Public Hanging" was needed to set an example for an everyday menace

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

In an emotional note, Priyanka Chopra said, "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 also wrote, "I'm so Proud of the justice system for hearing her voice.. in her dying declaration she appealed that her perpetrators not be spared. Justice - that was what the entire country demanded five years ago and never let the nation forget. Each voice that joined the battle was strident and clear - the six must be punished. Finally, they will pay. The brutality of such crimes is something I refuse to accept!!"

She also added that she is troubled by how women of the 21st century society allow such heinous things to happen to other women. "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," she wrote and concluded, "You will never be forgotten, Nirbhaya."

Singer Sonu Nigam also shared his thought on Twitter and said, "An emotionally apt consolation 2 Jyoti #Nirbhaya family though nothing can bring d unfortunate daughter back. Supreme Court of India, Salute." He also added, "Complete justice still evades in #NirbhayaCase , until the 'so called Juvenile' Rascal, is not brought to Justice. Atleast tell us his name."

Actor Dia Mirza wrote, "Justice has been delivered in the #NirbhayaCase. I hope that this verdict serves as a deterrent to the monsters in our society..."

Kaabil actor Rohit Roy also said, "And finally, justice prevails .. #NirbhayaCase ... and I hope this sets a precedent in each and every such heinous case.
