Nirbhaya Case: Time to hang the culprits at 6 AM on March 03, lawyer claims many legal options still left
All four convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape-murder case have been directed by the Delhi High Court to avail all their legal remedies within the next seven days. Passing the order on Wednesday (February 5, 2020), Delhi High Court judge Justice Suresh Kumar Kait observed that no doubt the Nirbhaya case was a heinous crime and the convicts will take every remedy available. The four convicts on death row are Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Akshay Thakur. The court observed that Mukesh Singh can not be segregated from other accused for the reason that he availed all his legal remedies in time. So, all the four - Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Akshay Thakur - will be hanged together. The order came on a petition filed by the Centre challenging a Delhi sessions court's order which stayed the death warrants issued against the four convicts. On February 4, 2020, Nirbhaya's parents' lawyer had sought an early disposal of the matter. The Centre had moved the Delhi High Court through Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to challenge the January 31 order of Patiala House Court Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana.
Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi on Friday said that her family will continue the legal battle till her daughter's rapists are executed. ''The lawyer of the convicts, AP Singh has challenged me saying that the convicts will never be executed. I will continue my fight. The government will have to execute the convicts,'' a teary-eyed Asha Devi said after a Delhi court postponed the execution of death warrants till further order.
The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday dismissed the Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case convict Pawan Kumar Gupta claiming that he was a juvenile at the time of crime--December 16, 2012. He also said that this fact was not taken into account by Delhi High Court during the proceedings in the case. The apex court did not find any fresh ground in the matter and so dismissed the plea.
