2012 Delhi gangrape victim's mother moves SC opposing review plea of convict

New Delhi/IBNS: Opposing the move, 2012 Delhi gangrape and murder victim Nirbhaya's mother on Friday approached the Supreme Court against the plea filed by one of the four death-row convicts seeking a review of its 2017 judgement awarding him death penalty.

Akshay Kumar Singh had filed the review petition in the court.

The matter is scheduled to be heard by a three-judge bench on Dec 17.

“I will approach the Supreme Court. The lawyer of the accused should have been pulled up a long time ago… I’m glad the court has rapped him,” the 2012 gangrape victim's mother Asha Devi was quoted as saying by News 18.

“I have waited for seven years, can wait for one more week. I will continue my fight for justice and will go to any extent for it,” she said.

The 23-year-old paramedic student was brutally assaulted and gangraped on December 16, 2012.

One of the accused in the case-Ram Singh- had allegedly committed suicide in Delhi's Tihar Jail.

Another accused was convicted by a juvenile justice board.

After serving three years term, he was released from a reformation home.
