Bunch of us women having lunch clapped in the restaurant after watching the news on TV. Nirbhaya's soul will finally rest in peace!!

Ashwin Mushran: Amidst all of this, one has to remember that the death sentence is for murder and not rape. There will still be a long road ahead for change.

Poonam Pandey: It is real Friday the 13th for all the four convicts.
