The four men convicted of gangraping and murdering a Delhi girl in December 2012, who came to be known as Nirbhaya, were hanged in pre-dawn darkness Friday,

“I will now fight to wipe out the social stigma of being called a rapist's father because I know my son never did that. I will not sit quite till I let the people know the truth,” Gupta, who is a fruit seller, said.

Alleging that courts were biased, he said, “Now when my son is dead, I believe courts will give a fair hearing to me.”

“People didn’t believe me because they thought I cooked up stories to save my son. I hope now they look at the evidences with a clean mind. If I fail to bring up the truth, I will prefer to die rather than to live with this stigma.”
