New Delhi: Nirbhaya's mother on Wednesday reiterated her demand for the death penalty for Mukesh Singh, one of the convicts of the December 16, 2012 Delhi gang-rape case, and said it was up to the government to decide whether to broadcast his controversial interview or not.

"His (Delhi gang-rape convict) sick mindset came out with that documentary. It is the government's decision whether it should be broadcast or not," she told ANI.

"I just want to say, such people are a threat to society. Government must award him capital punishment and give us justice. We want justice and women's security," she said.

A Delhi court has restrained the media from broadcasting or publishing the interview of Mukesh Singh after the Delhi police moved court for a restraining order against Singh's interview.

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has also issued an advisory to all television channels to not broadcast the documentary on Nirbhaya.

As per reports, the government has also sought an explanation from Tihar jail authorities over how the convict was interviewed in the custody.
