As the four men convicted of Nirbhaya’s gang rape and murder were hanged to death early Friday morning, Bollywood celebrities praised the verdict and called for stricter law enforcement to instill fear in those who think of committing such heinous crimes.
Actors Riteish Deshmukh, Taapsee Pannu and Preity Zinta among others, took to Twitter to react to the hanging of the convicts.
While sharing his tweet, Riteish also emphasised on the importance of reactive response to such crimes and added that more fast-track courts need to be in place to deal exclusively with rape cases.
“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.
