The pre-dawn execution of the four Nirbhaya Convicts was performed on Friday Morning about two hours after the Supreme Court dismissed the final petition of the convicts.

After the prosecution, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tweeted, “Justice has prevailed.” ” It is of utmost importance to ensure dignity and safety of women. Our Nari Shakti has excelled in every field. Together, we have to build a nation where the focus is on women empowerment, where there is emphasis on equality and opportunity,” the Prime Minister said.

Akshay Thakur, 31, Pawan Gupta, 25, Vinay Sharma, 26, and Mukesh Singh, 32, were sent to the gallows at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, where they spent the last few hours in isolation in separate cells, barely eating.

“We all have waited so long for this day. Today is a new dawn for daughters of India. The beasts have been hanged,” said Asha Devi, the mother of the young woman. After the Supreme Court’s verdict, she went home and hugged her daughter’s photo.

The victim had come to be known as “Nirbhaya” or fearless – who was gang-raped and tortured on a moving bus in Delhi.

The four convicts, along with two others – one of them a minor – had gang-raped the young woman and tortured her with an iron rod on the night of December 16, 2012. She died on December 29 at a hospital in Singapore.

One of the attackers, just short of 18 when the crime was committed, was released after spending three years at a reform home. The main accused, Ram Singh, was found hanging in jail.
