    Nirbhaya Convicts Mum On Last Wishes Ahead Of Hanging

    As per the court's order, the Nirbhaya case will be hanged to death at 6 am on February 1st, 2020

    The four Nirbhaya case convicts, who are to be hanged on February 1st 2020, stayed silent when they were asked about their last wish.

    As per reports, the convicts – Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta – remained tight-lipped when they were asked if they wanted to meet their family or if they wanted to leave their property to anyone.

    The rules allow death row convicts to choose which family member they want to meet for the last time and when. Convicts are also asked to state whether they want to leave their property to anyone.

    As per the court’s order, the Nirbhaya case will be hanged to death at 6 am on February 1st, 2020 at the Tihar Jail. It is now being suspected that the four convicts might file more petitions before the execution. 

    The government approached the Supreme Court on January 22nd, 2020 for a change in guidelines in death row cases so that the convicts cannot keep delaying the sentence by exploiting legal options. The Centre also wants the Supreme Court to set a deadline for the filing of petitions after the death warrant is signed.

    Case diary

    The Nirbhaya gang-rape incident occurred on December 16th, 2012 in Munirka in South Delhi. A 23-year-old female physiotherapy intern was beaten, gang-raped, and tortured in a government bus by six men. Eleven days after the assault, she was transferred to a hospital in Singapore but succumbed to her injuries two days later.

    All the accused were arrested and charged with sexual assault and murder. One of the accused, Ram Singh, died in police custody from possible suicide in the Tihar Jail.

    On September 10th, 2013, the four remaining adult defendants – Mukesh, Vinay, Pawan and Akshay Thakur – were found guilty of rape and murder and three days later were sentenced to death by hanging.  The Delhi High Court as well as Supreme Court have upheld the guilty verdict and the death sentences.

    The juvenile was convicted of rape and murder and was sentenced to three years of imprisonment in a reform facility. 

    The brutal gang-rape and murder of the young physiotherapy intern led to nationwide protests. The movement forced the government to set up a committee to review the laws on rape and crime against women.
