The stars have reacted once more on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Kunal Kohli -��Delayed justice as in Nirbhayas case & as will be in Mumbai gang-rape��too disgusts me as much as the rapists.

Anupam Kher -��Watching Television debates on Mumbai gang-rape��is worse case of Deja vu. Topic shifts everywhere else except for victim & punishment needed.

Sneha Rajani -��It was a special working day today. But the heart was constantly thumping for someone & sizzling in anger at the same time.

Neha Dhupia -��4 out of the 5 rapists already had police cases on their heads! Why were they let loose then ?

Vidyut Jammwal -��Girls must defend themselves & need 2b trained in atleast a basic level of martial arts. It shud be a curriculum compulsion…��This is something I am taking up as my own responsibility. We must be the change we want to see. I’m doing exactly that.

Vivek Oberoi -��Appalled,angry and disgusted to hear about the photojournalist girl who got gangraped in Mumbai. Death penalty for rapists!

Amitabh Bachchan��(on Facebook)-��Another horrendous rape in the city of Mumbai .. a young photo journalist raped in the heart of the city at an abandoned mill, by five men, in day light … not something to be proud of any longer, even after we knew that Mumbai is the safest city in the country …

Bipasha Basu -��Lets just accept it!We are not safe!

Aftab Shivdasani -��Shocking,disgusting and outrageous.. So how many more crimes before the government decides to incorporate the sternest law?

Dia Mirza -��Every reaction, every statement, every word….d̩j�� vu.

Farhan Akhtar -��Dear CM, Home min state, Police Comm & sluggish judiciary… Wish u all were everyday women so you’d truly realise the fear they must feel…��There has to be harsher punishment for rape & a fixed time limit within which cases must reach a verdict in court. Wake up system!!

Shah Rukh Khan -��1.Punishing those responsible for this heinous crime is 1 part of the deterrent.The 2nd,far greater deterrent is to change our own mindsets…��2. To educate our boys in a manner that the respect for women becomes implicit in their natures and they begin to understand…��3…that the objectification of women is equally disrespectful to their so called manhood as it is to the women they objectify.

Riteish Deshmukh – Shamed and angered.

Ashish Chowdhry -��Again I say that only the consequences faced by the rapists will determine the agenda of acts as such in future.I pray that sense prevails.

Sophie Choudry -��When I moved from London to Mumbai, I used to pride myself in saying I live in one of the safest cities in the world. The joke is on me!!
