Bollywood Lauds The Court Judgement
Actors took the twitter to laud the judgement of the court. Actor Ritesh Deshmukh took his twitter and share why quick justice should be served. Stricter law enforcement, harsher punishment & fast courts for quick justice is the only way to instil fear in monsters who even think of such heinous acts. #JusticeForNirbhaya,” Riteish tweeted.
#JusticeForNirbhaya My thoughts and prayers are with the parents, friends & loved ones of Nirbhaya. The wait has been long but the justice has been served.

Bollywood Diva Preeti Zinta also believed the same thing. What has happened now, should have happened years ago. She tweeted, ‘Finally the #Nirbhayacase comes to an end. I wish it would have been faster but I’m happy it’s over. Finally she & her parents are in peace”.
If #Nirbhaya rapists were hung in 2012 the judicial system would have stopped so much crime against women. Fear of the law would have kept the lawless in check. Prevention is always better than cure. It’s time the Indian govt. takes steps for judicial reforms. #RIPNirbhaya????

There is surely some fault in our system that justice is being served after eight long years.
But finally, justice has been delayed and not denied.
