It is heartbreaking how even in the 21st century, an educated segment of our society blames the victims for sexual assaults. Nirabhya case convict’s lawyer AP Singh is one such monster.
The society believes in blaming the victims, their clothes, their parents for sexual assaults. While they blame victims, they shut their eyes to the convicts’ heinous crimes.
After 7 years of legal battle, when the justice was delivered to Nirbhaya and her parents, the whole nation came forward to celebrate their victory.
The four convicts in Nirbhaya’s case were finally hanged on March 20, at 5.30 am.
But after losing the case after 7 long years, Nirbhaya’s rapists’ lawyer, Advocate AP Singh made a heartbreaking statement that angered many netizens.
He ended up making derogatory statements over Nirbhaya’s character. He asked Nirbhaya’s mother,
“Raat ke sade barah baje tak kyun nahi pata tha ki tumhari beti kahan hai?”
(Translation: Why you didn’t know where was your daughter at 12:30 am in the night?)
This advocate not only made every attempt to delay justice and save the culprits but also made a heartbreaking statement ina poor taste. His statement outraged many netizens.
Many came forward to express their outrage and anger on Twitter.
Shame on Ap singh. Just hear his statement. How can he be so inhuman about this case. He is so fucking shameless person after the 6 criminals of nirbhaya case. Being the lawyer of criminals he has also adapted the language of criminals. SHAME ON AP SINGH SHAME #NirbhayaJusticepic.twitter.com/AHhmWQFUNR
I don’t think there is any level lower than this you can stoop to, for anyone, anywhere. An absolute disgrace of a human being. I just feel for Nirbhaya’s family who have to go through this mockery of a judiciary system. Hope they find all the strength in the world. #RIPNirbhaya
At IFORHER, we are heartbroken as Advocate AP Singh, who was supposed to be the custodian of justice and truth, left no stone unturned in saving Nirbhaya’s culprits from the death sentence. But, we are extremely happy as the justice might have been delayed but not denied after all.
