A lawyer for the men, A.P. Singh, told reporters at the courthouse after the verdict that "injustice" had been done to the convicted murderers - using the Hindi word for "boys" to describe them - and the court had caved to public and political pressure to uphold the death penalty. But their "struggle does not end here", she said, referring to the legal steps that remain before the death sentence is carried out.
A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushandismissed the review petition filed by Mukesh, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma to reduce their death penalty to a life sentence. Justice is getting delayed. Over the next few days, his brother Mukesh Singh, gym instructor Vinay Sharma, fruit seller Pawan Gupta, a helper on the bus Akshay Thakur, and the 17-year-old juvenile, who can not be named, are arrested. "I request judiciary to tighten their judicial system, serve justice to Nirbhaya by hanging them (culprits) as soon as possible and help other girls and women".
The bench said the three convicts were heard elaborately after they had appealed against the Delhi High Court's ruling, and they had not made any case for a review of the top court's verdict upholding their death penalty.
