Nirbhaya Case Convicts To Be Hanged On March 20 At 6 AM; Fresh Death Warrant Issued

New Delhi: Delhi Court issued a fresh death warrant on Thursday in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case for execution of death sentences by hanging at 6 am on March 20 by the neck of the four convicts.

"It is hereby directed that convicts will now be hanged by neck till death on March 20, 6am", Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana of Patila Court ordered in the application moved by Tihar Jail authorities for fresh death warrant.

The convicts were due to be hanged earlier on 3rd March 2020. But on March 2nd that was deferred to further orders by ASJ Dharmender Rana on the ground that Pawan Kumar Gupta's mercy petition was pending.

Pawan's appeal for mercy was dismissed by the President on Tuesday.

Following that, the present petition was moved under section 413 of the Criminal Procedure Code, stating that the President of India denied the pleas for mercy of all four convicts, namely Mukesh, Vinay, Pawan, and Akshay.

Therefore, no appeal is pending before any court on behalf of any of the convicts.

The application also referred to the High Court order in the petition for review moved the Centre, in which convicts were given a maximum of seven days to exhaust all their legal remedies.

A fresh death warrant was requested on the basis that, as at today, none of the convicts ' appeals was pending before any court or constitutional authority, and therefore nothing survives as at present.

The first common death warrant was issued against the four convicts on 7 January, and the execution date was set for 22 January. Nevertheless, due to subsequent changes in the legal remedies exercised by the convicts, the said date had to be postponed to February 1, by order dated January 17.
