“She said she is innocent, and she will appeal the death sentence,” Lal said.

Reacting to the verdict, Sukhjeet’s mother Vanishjeet Kaur told reporters on Saturday, “I am relieved. My prayers have been answered and I got what I expected from the court. I am pleased to punish Ramandeep. He was demanding death so that no mother’s child would die like this.
