Devi said the struggle would continue till the time they are hanged and hoped that March 20 to be the final date of hanging.
She also said that if there is any chance, she would want to see the convicts dying.
“While dying Nirbhaya asked to ensure they get such punishment that such crime is not repeated ever. If there is any chance, I would like to see them die,” said Devi.
