The father of a student who was killed after being gang-raped on a bus in New Delhi has called for her attackers to be hanged. Five men accused of her murder are due to go on trail today.
We have finished the mourning rituals for my daughter in the village but our mourning will not end until the court passes down its verdict. My daughter's soul will only rest in peace after the court punishes the men.
It is the duty of the court and the judges to ensure that the final order to punish all the accused is handed down quickly and all the men are hanged. No man has the right to live after committing such a heinous crime.
The gang rape of a young woman in Delhi has exposed deep fissures in Indian society, as assault victims finally find their voices.
Speaking hours before his daughters attackers appeared in court, the father of the India rape victim has called for the harshest penalty.
After almost three weeks of protests over the rape of an Indian woman on a Delhi bus, the nation could face a national strike.
