The petition of Pawan Kumar Gupta, one of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya case, was dismissed by the Delhi High Court during a hearing on Thursday, stating that it was present during the incident on December 16, 2012. The witness statement is not reliable.
The lower court has also dismissed the petition
Earlier in January this year, the same plea of convict Pawan’s father was also denied a hearing by the trial court of Delhi. The plea filed by the convict stated that he was a witness and his statement, in this case, was not credible.
Hanging on March 20
Let us know that the Patiala House Court of Delhi has issued a death warrant to hang the four convicts (Pawan Kumar Gupta, Vinay Kumar Sharma, Mukesh Singh, and Akshay Kumar Singh). According to the fourth warrant issued by the court, the four will be hanged simultaneously in Tihar Jail No-3 on March 20 at 5:30 am.
Preparation for hanging in Tihar jail
According to sources associated with the Tihar jail administration, preparations are being made once again for the hanging on March 20. For this, the final trial of hanging is also to be done. In such a situation, the executioner Pawan will also be called from Meerut on March 17, three days before the hanging and the final trial will take place a day before the hanging.
The health of the culprits is being closely monitored
Before the hanging, the Tihar Jail administration is keeping a close watch on other aspects of health, including the weight of the culprits. Especially on weight, because the weight was very important during hanging. The size of the noose is fixed according to the reason. CCTV footage is being watched daily to keep a close watch on health.
For the first time, four convicts will be hanged for the first time
Four convicts will be hanged together for the first time in Tihar Jail. This is an occasion in North India when four people will be hanged together. Earlier, four people were hanged together in the Abhayer-Joshi murder case of Maharashtra.
