"Despite all our efforts for three years, our government and our courts have released a criminal.

Crime has won: Nirbhaya's family

The assurance we were given that we would get justice, that has not been delivered. We are very disappointed.

"We haven't seen him, not met him, but despite all our efforts, the criminal will walk free," Asha Devi, mother of the victim, said, adding their three-year-old battle for justice has gone in vain.
