Four men convicted of gang rape will be executed in India

On Friday, India's Supreme Court upheld a lower court's decision to sentence four men convicted of a gang rape to death by execution. Vinay Sharma, Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta and Mukesh Singh were originally sentenced in September 2013, but they appealed the decision in the country's top court. Another perpetrator was underage at the time and received a lesser sentence, while a sixth attacker died in prison.
The case led to protests across India and intense media coverage around the world, shining a light on India's pervasive problem of sexual violence against women.

The victim's father, Badrinath Singh, told reporters outside the court that, 'we are very happy that th Supreme Court has heard our voice, and that they understood Nirbhaya's pain in this matter, and that along with Nirbhaya the whole country has found justice'.

Very good judgement. Hope this will serve as a lesson to others. We need such judgements in Nigeria.
