Nirbhaya rape case convicts to be hanged on March 3 at 6 am


New Delhi, Feb 17 (IANS): The four death-row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case will now be hanged on March 3 at 6 a.m., a local court announced here on Monday.

Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana pronounced the order on a petition seeking issuance of fresh date for the execution of death warrants in the case pertaining to the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman in the national capital in December 2012.

 

Expressing satisfaction over the latest court order, Nirbhaya's mother said, "I'm satisfied and happy. I hope the convicts will finally be hanged on March 3," Asha Devi told mediapersons.

The case pertains to the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old girl in the national capital in December 2012.

However, on January 17, the court had issued a fresh death warrant for the execution of the four Nirbhaya convicts, with the convicts now scheduled to be hanged at 6 am on February 1.

On January 31, a trial court had stayed "till further order" the execution of the four convicts -- Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay Kumar Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar (31).

Of the four convicts, Pawan has not yet availed the remedy of either curative petition or mercy plea.

    I request PM Modi government serving more 'Biryani' to these rapist. For any mother 7 years of waiting is too long for the justice.

    For the common man 'death sentence'. But BJP MLA in Unnao rape case only life sentence despite three of her relatives are murdered.

    I can be sure only when it is done.Each time one or other reason is given to put back since years.One side for the accused also not knowing when.Now they should be repenting .It is a lesson to the future rapists.

    Check out the accused lawyer statement in dainik bhaskar.. He said that there are still many options to delay the hanging.. No justice here people...judiciary is a big joke with thousands of loopholes. Many legal options for the criminals but no remedy for victims.

    Instead of exhausting 7 years in the court, such criminals should have hanged within maximum 6 months time. If any laxity or loop holes in our judiciary let them amend our existing laws to ensure that
    hanging is awarded at the earliest. The criminals, rapists are not getting the shock or fear of the law and that's why so many rapes (In age group of few months to middle aged ladies.) So many victims would have been saved. by seven years.

    I do not understand why people comment in negative about our judiciary. Everyone including Ajmal Kasab is given a fair trial. That is the greatness of our judiciary.
    I feel, in Nirbhaya case, a mere death sentence is not sufficient. What is happening now is the best form of the punishment. The culprits get a hope of life and it is shattered in a few days. Again, there is hope for life, after two days it is shattered again. They live in a hope for life, let them live until it shatters for the final time. Even minutes before hanging, they should eagerly wait for that little hope of life.

    My heart skipped a beat hearing this news. The men were allowed to live 7 years too long. For the merciless way the young warrior died justice must be served. Also the youngest was the most brutal and heartless so he deserves the same. An eye for an eye. And Karma thereafter. Long live the menory of a beaitiful soul

    The youngest was a Juvenile, but he was knowledgeable to do this most barbaric act. He was matured in his mind. What must be his family background? Hang him too?

    I don't guarantee that this given date will be final for hanging of Nirbhaya rape case convicts. Still fifteen days are there for hanging and in between anything can happen.This is India and judicial system can be manipulated any time to the convenience of convicts lawyer and court.Only we can say until all the four convicts have been hanged on March 3,2020 at 6.00 am without further delay or unethical reasons.Then only Nirbhayas mother and family members can leave a sigh of relief.Hope this will be the final date and will be hanged on stipulated date.

    There are so many issues for hanging
    The hanging man not available
    Hanging rope not available
    I have an idea
    You accept it or not I don't care
    Take them to China where there is Corona virus
    Leave them there to take care of patients
    No need to hang after few days they will perish

    Hope for the best, assume they all will be hanged on 3rd march without further delay, however, this is modi's BJP (Brahshtachari janata party) you can expect any miracle at the last moment as we seen in BABRI masjid case.
