"It will really give a great sigh of relief to me, to Nirbhaya's parents and to everyone else in the country when these convicts are hanged. These kinds of people should be hanged. I will marry off my daughter with the money I earn," he said.
Jaggesh announced to help Pawan and give him Rs 1 lakh for his daughter’s wedding after the latter spoke about his struggles in life.

I got emotional after hearing you (Pawan) say that you will marry off your daughter with the money you earn from hanging Nirbhaya convicts. If you hang Nirbhaya convicts, I will donate Rs 1 lakh from my hard-earned money. Now, I have reserved this money for you. Destroying of demons is a service to God. Hari Om.”
