And our favourite Bollywood star, Priyanka Chopra was one of them. She wrote an emotional letter on Twitter, to express how she felt about justice being prevailed.

Here's what she said,

"Yes, it has taken five long years, but today justice finally prevailed. The flame of this verdict should singe not just the dastardly four (of the other two, one is dead and one accused is a juvenile) but other such perpetrators in India as well.

""The brutal, barbaric and demoniacal conduct of the convicts shook the conscience of humanity and they don't deserve leniency," said the Supreme Court while reading out the death sentence to the four accused in the Nirbhaya rape-cum-murder case. I'm so Proud of the Justice system for hearing her voice... in her dying declaration she appealed that her perpetrators not to be spared.

"Justice – that is what an entire country demanded five years ago and never let the nation forget. Each voice that joined the battle was strident and clear – the six must be punished. Finally, they will pay. The brutality of such crimes is something I refuse to accept!! That we, as a modern 21st century society, allow such heinous things to happen to our women never ceases to trouble me. Unfortunately, the past can never be undone. So, we move on and make a promise to ourselves. That when an entire country is unified in wanting something, action is taken. This awakening, this unified voice to stop such brutal and demoniacal crimes, as our Supreme Court said, is what we must never let go onto mute mode.You will never be forgotten Nirbhaya."

You have touched all our hearts, Jyoti, and given the Nation, a reason to fight for women equality, and towards justice. You will never be forgotten.
