Nirbhaya Case | Delhi court dismisses convicts' plea seeking stay on tomorrow's hanging

2012 gangrape Three convicts approach Delhi court against execution Tihar police to respond

To this, the bench said only in India courts are so accessible as the convicts have moved the trial court, the Supreme Court and the high court on the same day.

It also said there has been gross delay in filing mercy plea and requested the counsel appearing for the convicts to present a substantial legal point instead of wasting time.

A three-judge bench head by Justice R Banumathi said the court can not "endlessly review" its orders.

Four men convicted of the 2012 gang rape and murder of a New Delhi student are set to be executed on Friday, the victim's lawyer said after a court dismissed a last-minute petition to delay the hangings.

The convicts had taken their petition for a reprieve to the Supreme Court after it was turned down by the Delhi High Court and the trial court in a span of 14 hours. Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana dismissed the plea after he was informed by the public prosecutor that second mercy pleas of two convicts, Akshay Kumar Singh and Pawan Gupta, were not entertained and were rejected on the ground that the first one was entertained and considered on merit.

The Patiala House Court on Thursday rejected all petitions of the convicts, Akshay Thakur, 31, Pawan Gupta, 25, Vinay Sharma, 26, and Mukesh Singh, 32, ND TV reported.

Schools will shut gates until further notice on Friday
The government has advised people not to go to pubs, restaurants, cinemas or restaurants to help stop the spread of coronavirus. Powerless kids incorporate the individuals who have a social specialist and those with instructive wellbeing and care plans.

Resilience of law signifies inherent safeguards against human errors and not the weakness of law, a Delhi court observed on Thursday while addressing concerns over the efficacy of the Rule of Law due to the considerable time consumed by the judiciary in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case.

A Division Bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Sanjeev Narula heard the plea of the three convicts who sought a stay on the execution on the ground of pendency of various legal applications in different courts.

A three-judge Bench of Justice R Bhanumati, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice AS Bopanna made it clear he had exhausted all his remedies and no fresh evidence can be entertained at this stage. The Supreme Court upheld the Delhi High Court's verdict in 2017.

As it became clear that the convicts will be hanged on Friday, their family members were seen wailing and crying. Their lawyer AP Singh, who once bragged to Nirbhaya's mother that the "hanging will never happen", pleaded to the court that life, even on the India-Pakistan border, will be acceptable to them. "Now I will get peace", she said. She died on December 29, 2012, at a hospital in Singapore. Six people, including the four convicts and a juvenile, were named as accused.

Ram Singh, the sixth accused, allegedly committed suicide in Tihar jail days after the trial began in the case. The juvenile was released in 2015 after spending three years in a correctional home.
