A poem penned by a minor victim hours before was she was killed by her obsessed lover last year became a crucial evidence in ensuring that her perpetrator was awarded a death sentence for the crime he committed.
The extract of the poem went something like this, "I wish I were dead, every time I close my eyes, I see dark paradise. I am tired of being here, suppressed by my own fears… We went from playing with our toys to become toys ourselves. So boys will be boys and we women will never tell.”
Additional Sessions Judge Virender Kumar Bansal read out the poem as part of his order, while handing out life imprisonment to the convict Sarthak Kapoor for killing his school junior Shreya Sharma (17) in Delhi.
