The Supreme Court will hear the Central and Delhi Government petition for the permission of hanging of different convicts in different dates those are convicted and sentenced to death in Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case , on next Tuesday ,11 Th February for the judgement .
The administration had tested the Delhi High Court decision expelling its supplication against the stay on the execution of the four death row convicts.
The Government had needed notification to be sent to the four convicts. A single Justice bench headed by Justice R Bhanumathi didn't regard to the administration's solicitation, saying it would additionally defer the issue.
Convicts are Testing patience of the country
"The nation's patience has been tested enough, the Supreme Court will have to lay down law on this"- the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said to the court.
Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta, Mukesh Singh and Akshay Singh - convicted for the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old paramedical student, who came to be known as "Nirbhaya" in Delhi in 2012 - were to be executed on February 1 at Tihar Jail.
But Delhi Patiyala District Court passed a stay order on the execution as mercy appeal one of the convicts named Vinay Sharma was pending before the Honorable President Ram Nath Kovind.As his appeal was rejected by the President another convict Akshay Sing immediately submitted his appeal for life to the President only to delay and postponed the execution
The Central Government also explained that the all four convicts are intentionally delaying to file their legal remedies and searching every possible loop holes of the law only to postpone the execution.
The Delhi High Court on Wednesday gave the four convicts seven days' a great opportunity to wrap up every single legitimate alternative, after which the preliminary court will start procedures for their execution.
Aside from the four sentenced men, two more were charged in this case. Ram Singh , who was discovered hanging in his cell at Tihar jail and the 6th, who was barely shy of 18 years of age at the time of crime , was discharged from the reform home after three years .
