Nirbhaya verdict: rapists to be hanged on 22 January 2020, says Patiala House Court, Delhi

New Delhi: The Patiala House Court issued a death warrant in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case against all four convicts on 8th December, 2019. The execution is scheduled to take place on January 22 at 7 a.m. and will take place in prison number 3 in Tihar Jail, Delhi.

Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora, who issued death warrants, said the convicts would be able to use their legal remedies within 14 days. The four convicts in the death row namely, Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta were produced by video conferencing before the court.

During the hearing, the advocate stated that none of the convicts had an application pending before any court or before President Ram Nath Kovind and that the Supreme Court had previously dismissed the petition for review of all the convicts.

Nirbhaya's mother, Asha Devi, said she now has justice for her daughter. "The execution of the four convicts will empower the women of the country. This decision will strengthen the trust of people in the judicial system.”

Badrinath Singh, the father of Nirbhaya, also expressed relief and said "It was a long journey, I am happy with the verdict."

The order is welcomed by the chairman of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), Swati Maliwal."It's a victory for every citizen of the country, I salute the mother who kept fighting for the past seven years," she said. "I would also like to thank the judges. Such rapists should be brought to justice in six months."
