Five years of Nirbhaya: Mamata calls for making society safe

by December 16, 2017 General

Remembering the brutal Nirbhaya gang rape case in on its fifth year, Chief Minister on Saturday called for making a safe society.

“Remembering #Nirbhaya on the fifth anniversary of brutal incident. We cannot compensate her loss but let us resolve to keep our society safe,” Banerjee tweeted.

The 23-year-old paramedical student was brutally gang raped inside a moving bus in on December 16, 2012, which led to her death due to internal injuries 13 days later in a Singapore hospital.

The rapists, six in all, pounced on the young woman who had boarded the bus with her male friend to go home after seeing a movie.

After committing the crime, they dumped both on the side of a road. Later, some onlookers alerted the police. The sheer brutality of the crime led to nationwide revulsion and street protests.
