Will sleep tonight, says Nirbhaya’s father

For almost five years, the father of the young woman who was raped on December 16, 2012, and died of injuries 13 days later, had slept fitfully.

“I will sleep peacefully tonight,” he said, as the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence awarded to four convicts in the case.

Their daughter, too, will now rest in peace, Singh, and his wife Asha Devi, told the PTI after the judgement.

“She would have turned 28 on May 10 if she had lived,” Mr. Singh said.
