Some people used the opportunity to demand the death penalty for the juvenile who was tried as a minor in the Nirbhaya rape case in New Delhi in 2012. He was released in 2016 after serving his sentence.

Twitter users also praised local lawmaker Alka Lamba for castigating a news anchor for naming the Hyderabad rape victim during a live TV debate.
“You cannot use the name of a rape victim. Do you have an agenda oi mind? People all over social media are naming her; we should at least try to avoid using her name. It’s good that people are watching you live and you are being unmasked publicly,” Lamba can be hearing saying in the video.
Just look at Anchor's face.— Amity (@iamamity007) December 4, 2019
