International shooter Vartika Singh has written a letter in blood to Union Home Minister Amit Shah demanding that the four convicts in the Nirbhaya rape case who are facing a death sentence should be executed by her.
Singh said that this would send a message that a woman can execute men if they violate her. "Hanging of the Nirbhaya case convicts should be done by me. This will send a message throughout the country that a woman can also conduct execution. I want the women actors, MPs to support me. I hope this will bring change in society," she said.
She further said that she wanted support for her initiative from women actors, lawmakers and other celebrities.
The Tihar Jail officials, where the four are presently lodged, have asked the Buxar Jail in Bihar to prepare ropes for the hanging and the Uttar Pradesh government has been asked to provide hangmen.
The Buxar Jail has expertise in making ropes suitable for hanging while Uttar Pradesh has a 'certified' hangman Pawan in Meerut.
Vartika Singh had made news a few months ago when Babri plaintiff Iqbal Ansari had accused her of heckling him to concede the then disputed land to Hindus. She had accused him of attempting to assault her.
Besides Singh, 42-year-old Tamil police Head Constable S Subash Srinivasan, a police gallantry medal winner and grandson of INA veteran, has also volunteered to hang the killers of Nirbhaya in Tihar Jail. Srinivasan has also written a letter to the Tihar Jail authorities on December 6.
