Jessica Lal Murder: Coverage
Manu Sharma convicted
"It's a vindication for all of us," said Sabrina, the sister of slain model Jessica Lall, described the conviction of Manu. Emotionally overwhelmed, Sabrina, said, "It is a very emotional day for me." Having lost both her parents during the course of the family's seven-and-a-half-year-long fight for justice, she said she missed her mother and father.

"We miss mom and dad. It is a very good day for the family," said Sabrina, who has been at the forefront of the campaign for justice for Jessica. "There is a feeling of victory and vindication," she said.

She said it has been a long fight, "...but the end result has been amazing." Terming it a "vindication for all of us," Sabrina said finally truth has prevailed.

Asked what her message would be for Neelam Katara, who has been fighting a lone battle to bring the alleged murderers of her son Nitish to book, she said, "Never give up hope. Keep fighting."

Sabrina, along with other supporters of Jessica, took out candlelight vigils, building up public opinion for speedy justice in the case. Sharma shot at Jessica at the now closed down Tamarind Court restaurant in the capital after she refused to serve him liquor.
