HC upholds life term for rapists


Victim's sister elated

Ahmedabad: Vaishali Joshi, sister of Bijal, said she was excited and happy with the Gujarat High Court's decision. She said she knew justice would be done.

"It was never easy to tackle police and doing rounds of the court initially. I struggled with society as well as parents who didn't take up the case. I was questioned, threatened and lured to get the case back on many occasions," she said, adding, "I was provided security cover which I still have due to those threats."

"My brother doesn't even know about the verdict and my parents have remained away from the case since the beginning. I was all alone in the journey to see this day," Vaishali said.
