Gaursunder,brother-in-law of Wipro BPO employee Jyotikumari Choudhary (22) who was raped and murdered by two cab drivers in Pune in November 2007,said confirmation of the death sentence to the accused was not a victory for the family.
Jyotikumari’s abduction,rape and murder had shocked the urban population in Pune and Mumbai.
Gaursunder,who works in the IT sector,said,”We have learnt to live with it (the loss). It has changed all of us. We all find moments when we cry alone.”
Jyotikumari lived with her sister and brother-in-law in Pashan. Gaursunder had seen her off on the fateful night when the driver of her cab changed route and raped and later murdered her with a friend.
Gaursunder followed the proceedings in the Pune sessions court and would travel to Mumbai every day to witness the trial in the High Court.
“It’s the choice I made. The day I carried Jyoti’s body I decided I will fight. If they [the accused go to the Supreme Court,we will fight them there too,” he said.
Gaursunder said they moved out of their Pashan house about three years ago. “There was too much there.”
