The families of police sub-inspector Dinanath Shinde and biker Afzal Ibrahim, who were killed by the NRI beautician's SUV in January 2010, have still not been able to reconcile with the fact that they will not return home. The families want Nooriya Haveliwala to be awarded life imprisonment or death.
After hearing the quantum of sentence, 46-year old Devyani Shinde, the wife of Dinanath and mother of two, said she must be hanged to death or be awarded life term for the damage she caused due to driving rashly after consuming alcohol. "We are relieved but we had expected more. The woman should have been hanged to death so that youngsters do not break the law," said Devyani, who lives in Dadar police colony.
The Shinde family didn't wish to see Nooriya's face and hence did not attend the court proceedings. The family is unable to forget the night when police officers arrived at their house to inform them about the accident. Devyani's elder daughter Dipti (19) is a TYBcom student and 16-year-old son Siddhesh is in Class XI.
In Kurla, Zaid Mukhi, the brother-in-law of Afzal, who had been working as a manager with hotel Mezbaan, said the trial was not going to bring back his sister's husband. "The woman must be hanged so that every person who drives under the influence of alcohol learns a lesson," he said. "My sister has lost everything. She is so distraught that she has left Mumbai and now stays with our parents in Kashimira," he said.
"Afzal was doing well financially. He had taken a loan of Rs 4 lakh before his death and was repaying it in installments. After his death, everything has collapsed. My niece Hadia asks for her father every day," Zaid said. Afzal was stopped by the traffic police-sub-inspector at Princess Road to undergo a breathalyser test when Nooriya crashed into him.
