The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has been urged to enact legislation that would give death sentences to those convicted of rape minors within six months.
Swati Maliwal, head of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), wrote Modi, highlighting measures that need immediate attention to speed up justice for victims of sexual abuse.
The need for a speedy recovery comes as Delhi awaits those convicted of the ruthless rape on December 16, 2012, who will be hanged to death.
Maliwal said criminals could get away with such horrible crimes thanks to the long, complicated legal process.
In her letter, she alluded to the brutal incident, saying that Nirbhaya’s mother was still running from pillar to post to see if her daughter was getting justice.

Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi said, “Even after five years, her culprits are alive. If justice is not served on time, people are no longer afraid of the law.
“A strong law has to be formulated and the mindset of everyone, be it a politician or an ordinary man, must be changed. The crime against women is still going on and no one is saying anything. ‘
Nirbhaya, a para-medical student, was brutally raped by a group on a moving bus in South Delhi on the intervening night of December 16-17, 2012.
The incident happened when she returned with a friend after watching a movie. She died in a hospital in Singapore 13 days after the incident.

The other four – Akshay, Vinay Sharma, Pawan and Mukesh – were found guilty in September 2013 and sentenced to death by the Delhi Supreme Court, which was ratified by the chief judge this year.
According to Delhi Police statistics, crime against women has decreased compared to 2012.
Police officers say their various initiatives, such as setting up special anti-stalking cells, Sashakti – for women’s self-defense – and the Himmat app have encouraged victims to report abuse.
Maliwal has stressed the need for accelerated courts in the city so that rapists are punished immediately.
Also, there is the need to improve the forensic department’s delivery mechanism, as well as police accountability, she said in the letter to Modi.
Karuna Nandy, a lawyer who contributed to the 2013 anti-rape laws, told Mail Today: “In Delhi, the number of convictions in rape cases has decreased, but incident reports have increased since the December 16 gang rape. Women speak out against violence. ‘
