Justice Delayed again ; Delhi court stays the execution of the 4 convicts in Nirbhaya case

Four men convicted in the rape and fatal assault on a 23-year-old medical student in Delhi in 2012 won’t be hanged tomorrow as scheduled, a judge in Delhi said today.

For weeks, Akshay Thakur, 31, Pawan Gupta, 25, Vinay Sharma, 26, and Mukesh Singh, 32, have been filing staggered petitions challenging their death sentence in an effort to stall the execution.

With the mercy petition of one of the convicts still pending President Ram Nath Kovind, the rapists have not exhausted all their legal options, the judge ruled.
