Delhi gang-rape verdict: Death sentence will act as a deterrant, says Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde

Main accused Ram Singh was found hanging in his cell in February.

New Delhi:  Nine months after a young medical student was gang-raped and murdered on a moving bus in Delhi, four men have been given the death sentence for the attack that shocked India and ignited weeks of protests demanding better safety for women and swift justice for the 23-year-old who was killed.
Here are some reactions on the sentence
