New Delhi: Social activist and founder of NGO PARI (People against rapes in India) Yogita Bhayana on Thursday wrote to Union Minister Smriti Irani demanding that the day of execution of Nirbhaya convicts be declared as the ‘Rape Prevention Day’.
In her letter, she said “the execution should not be seen as an end to a case, but should mark a new era in India. “I propose to declare the day as ‘Rape Prevention Day’. Such naming shall help every Indian to understand what Nirbhaya and her family had endured and reaffirmed their vow to the vision of a rape-free India.”
Speaking to IANS, Bhayana said: “It is history in making that four people will be hanged together for the first time in India for such a heinous crime like rape. “It has never happened in the history of India. It is happening after 15 years when Dhanajaya Chatterjee was hanged for rape. (IANS)
