Here are some reactions from people on the street:
POOJA SINGH, 21, student, at the Munirka bus stop.
“The girl lost her life, the accused should get a similar punishment.”
JYOTI SHARMA, 21, student
“Even the juvenile should be given life imprisonment. The four adult accused should be hanged. I don’t feel safe anywhere even on a bus stand … I try to reach home before dark”
KAMINI MAKHIJA, 34, chartered accountant on metro train
“I am very happy (with the verdict). They should be hanged till death. Nothing much will improve, but this will send the right message. I travel by my car but don’t travel late night”
DIVYA BISHT, 20, student
“They should be hanged. There should be fear in people that they cannot do such things”
