Delhi gangrape: We have been failed by govt’s hollow promises, says Nirbhaya’s mother

The government and the system of the country have failed us, the mother of the 23-year-old medical student, who was raped and tortured on a moving bus in Delhi on December 16, 2012, has said.

The government and system of the country have failed us, mother of the 23-year-old medical student, who was raped and tortured on a moving bus in Delhi on December 16, 2012, has said. Victim Jyoti Singh Pandey and her male friend had boarded a bus from Munirka for Dwarka on the night of December 16, 2012. They were attacked by six people, one of them a minor, on the bus.

The juvenile convict is set to walk free from the rehabilitation home today. The Delhi Commission for Women filed a plea in the Supreme Court late on Saturday night challenging the Delhi High Court’s order which refused to stay the release of convict. But for Jyoti Singh’s mother the woman panel’s move is too little and too late.

“Both the Centre and the Delhi government have failed us. What lesson has the administration learnt in the past three years since that incident. Today, when I was forced to protest on streets of Delhi … then the Supreme Court is being approached. Why was this done before,” Jyoti’s mother Asha Devi told India Today TV.

“Everyone except the administration, the system of this country felt the pain that my daughter went through. The juvenile accused my daughter saying ‘Didi ye bus Dwarka jayegi, aa jao’. But what should I tell the administration. Leaders come to seek votes and claim they will fight for women safety. But look what have they done. Nothing. Everyone is trying to save the convict,” Asha Devi said.

“We have been failed by the system,” she said.
