Delhi Sessions Court today ordered all four convicts in the Nirbhaya Gang Rape and Murder Case to be hanged on 22 January at 7 am in Tihar Jail. The order was pronounced by Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora who issued death warrants against all of them.

Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta are the convicts to be hanged on 22 January.

Prosecution

While urging the court to issue the death warrants, the prosecution said,

“In between issuance and execution of death warrants of the convicts want to file curative petitions they can do so.”

The counsel for two of the convicts, namely — Mukesh and Vinay — said they were in process of filing a curative petition in the apex court.

“I am happy with the court’s decision. The convicts will be hanged at 7 am on January 22. This decision will instill fear in people who commit such crimes,”

Badrinath Singh, father of 2012 Delhi Gang-rape victim told ANI.

Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi on Tuesday expressed satisfaction over the judgement saying that her daughter has got justice and the order will strengthen the trust of people in the judicial system.

“Absolutely. Execution of the four convicts will empower the women of the country. This decision will strengthen the trust of people in the judicial system,” she said.

On Monday, the court had reserved order on issuing of death warrants against four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case.

The 23-year-old girl was gang-raped and murdered by six men on a moving bus on 16 December 2012. The main accused, Ram Singh, allegedly committed suicide in Tihar Jail during the trial. Another accused was a minor at the time of the commission of the crime and was sent to a reform facility and released after three years.
