A Delhi court Monday issued fresh date for execution of death warrants for March 3 at 6 am for the four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case. The order to issue death warrants was given by the Supreme Court while hearing the pleas by the State and Nirbhaya’s mother.
Nirbhaya’s mother, Asha Devi, said, “I am not very happy as this is the third time that the death warrant has been issued. We have struggled so much, so I am satisfied that the death warrant has been issued finally. ”
However, the counsel for the convicts says that all legal remedies will be used to demand justice for the four convicts. The convicts were to be hanged on 22 January but the execution was delayed when the convicts moved the court to seek mercy petitions.
