All four men convicted of raping and murdering a 23-year-old woman in New Delhi were sentenced to death on Friday.

The India Insight team spoke to people outside the Saket court complex in New Delhi. Here are edited excerpts from conversations:

Ashok Gupta, 48, street vendor

We are so happy. We have been protesting at Jantar Mantar, at India Gate, and we have waited for so long. This should have happened long ago. I think this will instil fear in people. And they will think before they commit any crime against women.

Rekha Palaria, 35, activist

This is a very good decision. I think this will be effective in reducing crime against women as people will be scared. This should become a precedent in such cases.

Amarpreet Kaur, 50, activist

We are very happy with the decision and I really want to say that the judge has taken a very good decision. If this kind of justice is delivered in these cases, it will set a very good example. At least people will be scared now. There is no fear of the law otherwise.
