Who is Indira Jaising? Cannot believe she even dared to suggest this,” Nirbhaya’s mother said on Saturday as she blasted senior advocate Indira Jaising for asking her to pardon the men on death row who were convicted for the 2012 gangrape of her daughter.
Indira Jaising on Friday had asked Nirbhaya’s mother to forgive her daughter’s convicts like Sonia Gandhi who had forgiven Nalini, a life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
Reacting to this, Nirbhaya’s mother lashed out at Indira Jaising and said it is “because of people like her that justice is not done with rape victims”.
“Who is Indira Jaising to give me such a suggestion? Whole country wants the convicts to be executed. Just because of people like her, justice is not done with rape victims,” Asha Devi said.
Nirbhaya’s mother claimed that she had met Indira Jaising over the years in Supreme Court but “not once” was the senior advocate concerned about her well being.
“Cannot believe how Indira Jaising even dared to suggest this. I met her many times over the years in Supreme Court and not once she asked about my well being and today she is speaking for the convicts. Such people earn livelihood by supporting rapists, hence rape incidents don’t stop,” Nirbhaya’s mother said.
Indira Jaising on Friday took to Twitter to make the request shortly after Asha Devi expressed her disappointment when a Delhi court postponed the date of the execution of the four convicts.
