2012 Delhi Nirbhaya Case: Death warrant has been issued for the fourth time on Thursday for the execution of all the four convicts (Vinay Kumar Sharma, Pawan Kumar Gupta, Mukesh Singh, and Akshay). According to the new death warrant, the four convicts will be hanged at 5.30 am on March 20. During the hearing on the plea of the Delhi government, a new death warrant was issued by the court of Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana of Delhi’s Patiala House Court.
2012 Delhi Nirbhaya Case:
On the death warrant issued by the court, Nirbhaya’s mother said that it is expected that this will be the last date for hanging the four convicts.
During the hearing on the death warrant, Judge Dharmendra Rana said that all the remedies of all the culprits have been exhausted. The defense has also accepted this.
The lawyer said that Akshay’s mercy petition is being hidden. The mercy petition which was rejected was incomplete. After this, the second mercy petition was filed with complete information. It is being hidden.
The court asked the Tihar administration to inform their lawyer about what you did about Akshay’s mercy petition.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Public Prosecutor has said in the court that now all the measures of the four convicts have been completed. Hence, there is no need to issue a notice to them. On this, the court said that the right to live has been given in the constitution and the other party should also be heard, hence the notice is issued to the culprits. The four convicts no longer have a legal option. So far, death warrants have been issued thrice to hang the culprits of this case.
Death warrant issued for the fourth time
Let us tell that Delhi’s Patiala House Court has so far issued three death warrants to hang Nirbhaya’s four convicts (Vinay Kumar Sharma, Pawan Kumar Gupta, Mukesh Singh, and Akshay Kumar Singh). Despite this, due to its legal hurdles, the death sentence has not been implemented. In such a situation, a death warrant has now been issued for the fourth time at the Patiala House Court in Delhi on the petition of Nirbhaya’s parents.
President rejects Pawan Gupta’s mercy petition
At the same time, on Thursday, President Ramnath Kovind turned down the mercy petition of Pawan Kumar, convicted of the Nirbhaya incident. Advocate AP Singh filed a mercy petition on behalf of Pawan on Monday. The mercy petitions of President Mukesh, Vinay and Akshay have already been rejected.
Let us tell you that on December 16, 2012, Nirbhaya was gang-raped in a moving bus in the Vasant Vihar area of South Delhi. After this, Nirbhaya died during treatment in a foreign hospital.
