Justice has been delivered to Nirbhaya but that does not allow us the comforts of a safe women-space in the public. Nor does the punishment of the crime, a necessary legal procedure, make us believe in the institution of Judiciary.

Korpan, on the other hand, is just the opposite of all that Nirbhaya represented – a mentally ill man, with little education and no stable job, hence with very few aspirations in life. Moreover, the aspersion of theft of a mobile phone made him more culpable for the crime he was accused of. It is almost believable that a mentally ill man with little money would be prone to committing such a crime.
