Nirbhaya case: Delhi court postpones execution of death warrants of all convicts till further order
NEW DELHI: A Delhi court Friday postponed execution of death warrants of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case till further order.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana passed the order on plea by the convicts seeking a stay on their execution on Saturday, February 1. The court had reserved its order in the pre-lunch session.
The court did not agree with the Tihar jail authorities which had challenged the application of three condemned prisoners in the case seeking a stay on their execution.
The black warrants for execution of the death sentence against Pawan Gupta, Vinay Kumar Sharma, Akshay Kumar and Mukesh Kumar Singh, were issued on January 17.
The convicts' lawyer argued that rules dictate that when one convict's plea is pending the others cannot be hanged.
Advocate A P Singh, representing the convicts -- Pawan, Vinay and Akshay -- urged the court to adjourn the executions "sine die" (with no appointed date for resumption). Vinay's mercy plea before the president is pending.
Mukesh mercy plea was dismissed by President Ram Nath Kovind on January 17. The appeal against the rejection was thrown out by the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
The trial court on January 17 issued black warrants for the second time for the execution of all the four convicts in the case in Tihar jail at 6 am on February 1. Earlier, on January 7, the court had fixed January 22 as the hanging date.
The curative petitions of Vinay and Akshay have been rejected by the apex court. Pawan is the only one yet not to file a curative plea.
Convicts have the option of moving a mercy petition before the president only after the apex court dismisses their curative plea.
Earlier in the day, the apex court dismissed Pawan's plea seeking review of the decision by which his application claiming to be a juvenile at the time of the commission of offence was rejected.
A 23-year-old physiotherapy intern who came to be known as "Nirbhaya" (the fearless one) was gangraped and savagely assaulted on the night of December 16, 2012, in a moving bus in South Delhi. She died of her injuries a fortnight later in a Singapore hospital.

Fix the dates. Otherwise, the convicts will keep enjoying food, clothing and shelter from taxpayers money. If the date is fixed, they will have to file the petitions before this date to get adjournment of date.
Corrupted judges will delay more like Chiddu case.. Judges are bribed by Chiddu. Same in this case also.
HANG THE JUDGES FIRST FOR JUSTICE DENIED AS JUSTICE DELAYED....THEN EVERYTHING WILL SET RIGHT
Who is paying the lawyer fees for these criminals? I am sure some political forces are behind this. Their own sons must have raped and killed some girls and they will be next in gallows if this hanging goes through. That's why they are trying to stop it so badly.
How can High Court or any lower court stop the procedures had gone through entire process? I think this all should be stayed by Supreme Court.
Who is paying the fees of this wretched lawyer?He should also be hanged along with these monster.I feel sure that it is AAP party or Congress that is financing these wretched creatures.
the Delhi Court judge Rana needs to be hanged. poor judgement. his children should have been raped by these convits then he will understand how the parents are going through.
3 Cheers to Hyderabad Police. Nirbhaya Rapist are proving how impotent is a Judicial system.
Encouragement by judges to rape again and again.
Indian judicial system is a joke.
Which one is the Apex court in the country....? Delhi High court or SC of India.

What a fantastic law we have in this country?It goes in favour of Rapists.Perhaps these rapists may not be punished and they are moving in this direction.
I appeal to the Honorable Judges and the President of India to reject all the Pleas at once and Hang these culprits asap.
Great drama being played out. What kind of judicial system does India have?

Why Courts are doing such drama. Nowadays it has become normal for 4/5 years old girls to get raped. Why Courts are turning India into rape capital.
Criminals have HUMAN RIGHTS! But what about the rights of the victims and their families?
Indian judiciary is waiting for few more rapes, deaths, burns, suicides, fractures etc
Criminal justice system needs an overhaul at the earliest.

Indian Judicial system is a Joke .
8 yrs to reach verdict?Our courts have taken 2 decades to punish mumbai blast accused.These judges live in colonial era when things were very very very very very slow.
Where is the provision in law requiring all accused in a crime should be hanged together? They acted in sequence and at slightly differing points if time. So what principle indicates that they should all hang together?Thank God the judge did not say they all shall hang by one noose on the same rope. Why have such stupids as judges?
You never know. The judge may say so next time!
These evils should not be given any mercy!!! They should be tortured and hanged!!!
What the hell with the system?What the SC doing looking at all these mockery of justic delayed?
ALL INDIAN PUBLIC BLOOD IS BOILING SINCE LAST 8 YEARS. EITHER PARLIAMENT SHOULD REWRITE THE LAW OF PUNISHING THIS TYPE OF CRIMINALS ABOLISHING THE DELAY NOT MORE THAN 30 DAYS ONCE CRIME ESTABLISHED AND PROVED 100%. FURTHER PROLONGING COURT JUDGES AND CRIMINAL SUPPORTING LAYERS MUST BE HANGED TO DEATH FOR MAKING FUN OUT OF JUDICIARY SYSTEM AND MAKING 125 PLUS CRORE PUBLIC BLOOD BOILING WITH NEVER ENDING DELAYS. OR LET THE JUDGES AND LAWYERS MUST BE LEFT TO FREE TO PUBLIC ..SO THAT THEY WILL BE KILLED ALONG WITH CRIMINALS BY PUBLIC ON ROADS.... SHAME AND FILTHY SHAME ON INDIAN DJUDICIARY.
Seeing such kind of TIME WASTING and unnecessary delays that prompt people to take law into their own hands!
The judiciary has hanged itself in the Nirbhaya case. This should trigger fundamental reforms in the judiciary in India.It should not be forgotten that had the judges taken the judicial notice of all existing laws as mandated by sec.57(1) of the Indian Evidence Act,this 'tamasha' of procedure killing substance in violation of the basic structure guarantee of equality will not have arisen. The judges should be prosecuted as the offences stand committed.If not done, the President should be prosecuted after his retirement in terms of Art 361 for offences under the IPC sections and relevant constitutional provisions cited including Art 60.
It is this kind of drama that made people rejoice when rapists were shot in encounter in Hyderabad. Must have a SENSITIVE judiciary so that public does think of taking the law in their hands.
Indian judiciary is very inefficient and lawyers are corrupt, judges are unfit as they were selected by useless judges. Ashamed of the lawyer who is representing the convicts, he should be barred from practising law in the courts
The court should release all four so that they find another Nirbhaya and repeat it all over again.DISGUSTING !
SC should abolish all appeals of rogues
Govt should file appeal to thrash this decision urgently.
Truly our judiciary system SUCKS. It is actually the rape of our entire law & order.
