'Nothing has changed,' he says, eight years after a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern was raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus in south Delhi

Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi says nothing has changed in our country when it comes to women's security.
The 2012 Delhi gang-rape case finally came to an end in the wee hours of Friday morning as four Nirbhaya case convicts were hanged to death in Delhi's Tihar jail.
'Now when my son is dead, I believe courts will give a fair hearing to me,' said father of one of the convicts.

Talking to reporters at her house, Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi said that justice was delayed, but not denied, and added that they would continue their fight for justice for India's daughters.
Mukesh Singh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar Singh (31) were executed for the savage assault in an empty moving bus on the 23-year-old physiotherapy intern who came to be known the world over as Nirbhaya, the fearless one.
The parents of death-row convicts have suggested that the convicts should be handed over to the World Health Organization for coronavirus clinical trial.
While dismissing the plea, the bench said pending petitions of the convicts in various fora is untenable in law as a ground to stay the execution.
Mukesh Singh had moved the Supreme Court, challenging a Delhi High Court order which rejected his claim that he was not in the city when at the time of crime on December 16, 2012.
A trial court has issued fresh death warrants for March 20 at 5.30 am, as the date for the execution of convicts Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay.
The four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case have no legal remedy available which can delay their hanging.
The Delhi jail manual says if a death row convict develops an acute or serious (not chronic) physical illness, hanging will be postponed. The jail superintendent will take the medical opinion to determine the degree of physical disability
On March 5, a trial court issued fresh black warrants for the execution of all the four convicts in the case - Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay (26) and Akshay (31) - in Tihar Jail at 5.30 am on March 20.
The high court said the plea was 'devoid of any substance' and dismissed it
