“Her courage and her zest for life will always serve as an inspiration to us. We should all pay tribute to her by resolving that we will not let the loss of her life go in vain and will work together to enhance the safety and security of women in our country,” Singh said.
The Prime Minister took the opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of Justice J S Verma Committee, which proposed amendments in criminal law to be able to deal more efficiently with heinous crimes against women.
“The labor of love of these three great legal luminaries has made it possible for the Government to make our statutes stronger and more effective as far as crimes against women are concerned. As I have said on an earlier occasion as well, there is a great deal more that needs to be done not only for making women safer and more secure in our country, but also for empowering them socially and economically. Our Government will continue to make all possible efforts in this direction,” he added.
