Death sentence for the rapists/murderers is a certainity. It was well planned and pre-determined/pre-meditated.
This case is a litmus test for the Indian criminal justice system. All the courts (Lower through High Court/Supreme Court) should pass and maintain the death sentence. usually what happens is the lower court gives the death sentence but it gets converted into life sentence (which means only 14 years in jail) on appeal to higher court. This shitty system needs to go and the sentences needs to be made more stringent.
To start with Life sentence should mean entire life without parole like in the US.
Not true. For crimes that come under Sections 376A or 376D of the IPC, life is indeed life. That's what I was referring to when saying death sentence is too good for these perps. They need to be made to suffer. A lot.
376A. Whoever, commits an offence punishable under sub-section (1) or sub-section (2) of section 376 and in the course of such commission inflicts an injury which causes the death of the woman or causes the woman to be in a persistent vegetative state, shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than twenty years, but which may extend to imprisonment for life, which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of that person's natural life, or with death
376D. Where a woman is raped by one or more persons constituting a group or acting in furtherance of a common intention, each of those persons shall be deemed to have committed the offence of rape and shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than twenty years, but which may extend to life which shall mean imprisonment for the remainder of that person's natural life, and with fine:
- Provided that such fine shall be just and reasonable to meet the medical expenses and rehabilitation of the victim
- Provided further that any fine imposed under this section shall be paid to the victim

The law is clear. Hope the police investigation is done properly so these a******s don't get off on some technicality.
