The verdict was served and as they said, Nirbhaya can rest in peace now! The verdict in the Nirbhaya gangrape case was pronounced by the Supreme Court yesterday. While the entire nation kept debating over the death sentence given to the four rapists, actor Priyanka Chopra said she was proud of the verdict. In an emotional note, shared on her Twitter page, the Baywatch star 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!!”

In the brief note, 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.”
