Nirbhaya Rape Case: Final Death Warrants Against The 4 Convicts May Be Issued In Today's Hearing

New Delhi: A petition was filed by Nirbhaya's parents in Delhi's Patiala House Court on Wednesday (4th March, 2020) to issue the death warrant. The plea was filed after the mercy petition of convict Pawan Kumar Gupta was dismissed by President Ram Nath Kovind.

Additional Sessions Judge D Rana may issue notice to the convicts on an application filed on behalf of the prosecution. There is a possibility that a death warrant may be issued today (5th March, 2020) at 2 o'clock. 

Seema Khushwaha, Lawyer of Nirbhaya's parents, says that she will appeal a death petition by issuing a new petition, which will set the new date of execution. This time the date of the death warrant will be final. 

Sandeep Goyal (DG, Tihar Jail) has also received a statement that a petition will be filed in the court after the mercy petition of convict Pawan Kumar Gupta is rejected by the President. 

Acting upon the date of execution of Nirbhaya convicts (which was set for March 3, 2020), not only the Tihar Jail Administration but also the doctors of Western District Police, Traffic Police, Western District Revenue Department and Deendayal Upadhyay (DDU) Hospital were fully prepared. 

However, preparations were stopped as soon as it was learned that the hanging of the culprits had been postponed. The way to hang the four convicts is clear. Now only Pawan has the option of challenging the Supreme Court against the mercy petition rejected by the President, the other three have also lost their option. Patiala House Court has issued a notice to the four convicts of the Nirbhaya case.  All the culprits will have to file a reply. Hearing will be held again today.
