Hang rapists, say family of woman’s friend
New Delhi: The family of the 28- yearold male friend of the woman who died on Saturday after being gangraped demanded that the six rapists should be hanged “as soon as possible”.
“Our hearts are with the family of the girl, and we are very sad,” a family member of the woman’s friend said, declining to be identified.
“Now that the girl has died, the six men should be tried for murder,” the family member said.
“They should be hanged as soon as possible,” the family member added.
The family member said they would attend the last rites of the woman after her body was brought to India from Singapore.
Meanwhile, Ravidas Camp, a south Delhi slum, which is home to four of the six gang- rapists, was seething with anger over the woman’s death as some residents pressed for hanging the culprits and described them as “wolves”.
“Ram Singh ( who was driving the bus) must be hanged as such wolves deserve nothing less than that,” area resident and class X student Pooja Yadav said.
“Our heads hang in shame today because of the despicable act of these boys. They must reap what they have sown,” said Rajji, a woman in her 20s.
