The four convicts of the Nirbhaya rape and murder case will be hanged on March 3 at 6 am, a Delhi court said.
New Delhi: Four convicts who are on death row in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case will be hanged on March 3 at 6 am, a Delhi court said on February 17.
The Patiala House Court on Monday issued fresh death warrants against four convicts while hearing a petition by the state and Nirbhaya's parents.
The Delhi high court on February 5 granted a week's time to the four convicts to avail all legal remedies and said that the convicts cannot be hanged separately since they were convicted for the same crime.
A Delhi court had issued a death warrant against the four convicts Vinay Sharma, Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta, and Mukesh Singh on January 7 and they were scheduled to be executed on January 22 at Tihar Jail. The execution which was pushed to February 1 was then suspended indefinitely by a Delhi court.
