  • With this verdict on the plea by Akshay Kumar Singh, the review petitions of all the four death row convicts in the case stand dismissed by the top court. The convicts are yet to file curative petition in the apex court that is the last legal recourse available to a person and it is generally considered in-chamber.

    The convict has sought a direction restraining the authorities from executing the death penalty, which has been scheduled for February 1. He has challenged the high court’s December 19 order by which it also deprecated the conduct of his advocate for filing forged documents and not appearing in the court.

    It also sought a direction that "if the convict of death sentence wants to file mercy petition, it would be mandatory for a convict of death sentence to do so only within a period of seven days from the date of receipt of death warrant issued by the competent court".

    Convict Pawan Kumar Gupta has challenged the high court's December 19 order by which it had also deprecated the conduct of his advocate for filing forged documents and not appearing in the court.

    The four convicts -- Vinay Sharma (26), Mukesh Kumar (32), Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and Pawan Gupta (25) -- are to be hanged on January 22 at 7 am in Tihar jail. A Delhi court had issued their death warrants on January 7. The Delhi government and the prison authorities informed the court that under the rules, it will have to wait for the mercy plea to be decided before executing the death warrant.

    Seeking to be declared a juvenile at the time of occurrence of the incident, Pawan alleged that his ossification test was not conducted by the investigating officers and claimed benefit under the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act.

    Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora was hearing a plea by one of the four death row convicts in the case, Mukesh Kumar Singh, seeking postponement of the date of his execution scheduled for January 22. Earlier in the day, the Tihar jail authorities sought issuance of fresh death warrants against the four convicts.

    The Delhi government on Wednesday recommended rejecting the mercy plea filed by Mukesh Singh, one of the four death row convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case, and forwarded it to the LG at "lightning speed", Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said. He said the recommendation on the mercy petition will now be sent to the Union Home Ministry.

    The four convicts -- Vinay Sharma (26), Mukesh Kumar (32), Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and Pawan Gupta (25) -- are to be hanged on January 22 at 7 am in Tihar jail as a Delhi court has issued their death warrants on January 7. The plea of convict Mukesh is listed for hearing on Wednesday before a bench of Justices Manmohan and Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.

    Citing a survey of one lakh samples of food conducted by enforcement officers over last years, FSSAI Chairman Pawan Kumar Aggarwal said, 3.7 per cent of food was found to be unsafe, 15 per cent was non-standard food and 9 per cent was mis-branded food.

    An advocate appearing for three of the four death row convicts in the case has moved the court on Friday alleging that the Tihar jail authorities were not handing over certain documents and this was causing delay in filing their mercy and curative petitions.
