Execution of four surviving convicts of the gangrape and murder of Nirbhaya was carried out early Friday by hanging after eight-year long trial.
A group of children, both girls and boys, celebrated the occasion as a victory day holding aloft banners depicting the four condemned men. The girls who took part in the event attend Taekwondo training session held in the park of society daily.
They were seen holding banners of ‘Nari Tujhe Salaam’ (salute to womanhood), ‘We can do it’, ‘Women are as strong as men’, etc.
President of the society’s resident welfare association (RWA), Dharmendra Sharma, thanked the judiciary for hanging the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
The society has been celebrating December 16 as 'Nirbhaya Diwas' every year. Last year, on the occasion, the society arranged for Taekwondo classes for girls to make them self-reliant in defending themselves against any eventuality.
