In the Nirbhaya Case, the Patiala House Court has refused to issue the death warrant of the convicts. At the same time, in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case, the Supreme Court on Friday heard the application of the Central and Delhi government to hang the culprits separately. Hearing the plea, issuing notice to the four convicts, seeking answers. The Supreme Court said that the seven-day time of the High Court is ending on February 11. The Supreme Court will hear the matter on February 11 at two o’clock.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta in Court said that by giving a charge, what is the status at present? Mehta said that the court has to decide the question of law. We have got partial relief from the High Court. All options of the three convicts have been completed. Pawan Gupta has not imposed a curative and mercy petition. Akshay, Vinay, and Pawan had filed an application in the lower court. In which he said that all the culprits can be hanged simultaneously only.
At the same time, he said, the question is whether delaying in the thoughtful manner of a convict also benefits those convicts who have completed all their treatment. Pawan has the remedy left as a mercy petition. Can all convicts be relieved for only one convict? Also, Tushar Mehta said that the lower court wrongly applied the Prison Rule, against which we were successful in the High Court.
