"I will not mourn but salute the young women who survived for so many days in spite of brutal injuries," said Jasdeep Dhillon, a teacher. "May her soul rest in peace." "Her rapists were inhuman," said Navnoor Sidhu, a student. "I wish the government amended the rape law to give them the severest of punishments."
The death of the rape victim was slap on the face of Indian law and order, said Sabina, another student. "Repeated rapes in Punjab also speak of alarm. Women's safety should be ensured in time," she added. "Delayed police investigation emboldens rapists," said Neetu Arora, a teacher. "We should fight for justice and fair inquiry period."
Shreya, a student, argued that as school always insisted on homework, the police should also be bound to be thorough with investigation to expedite rape trials. "I had planned to study further in Delhi but this incident has frightened my parents and they have decided not to send me to that city," said Lavika, another student.
