Family moves on with life

TEARY eyed Sumitra Devi didn't know whether to be happy that the person who killed her husband has been put behind bars for life or feel sad that the man she loved was taken from her.

Ms Devi had sat in on the trial of Devendra Naiker from day one.

"Justice has been done. He is getting what he deserves but it's not enough," said Ms Devi.

"My children are without a father because of that man. We have been struggling because of him. Going to school for them, even getting by has been hard for all of us.

"He has to pay for all the pain and suffering he has caused my family."

Ms Devi said she married Vishal Mishra when she was 16 years old and they had two children; Vineet is now nine years old and Sonali, 16.
