Nirbhaya Convicts to be Hanged on March 20 at 5.30am as Delhi Court Issues Fresh Death Warrant

A Delhi court Thursday issued fresh death warrants for execution of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case for March 20 at 5.30 am.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana fixed March 20 as the new date of execution after it was told by the Delhi government that the convicts have exhausted all their legal remedies.

The death warrant was issued a day after President Ram Nath Kovind rejected the mercy petition of Pawan Gupta, the last of the four death row convicts. With the President’s rejection, the convicts had exhausted all options for relief from the death sentence.
