Nirbhaya case: Court seeks jail report on assault on convict
NATIONAL | MARCH 12, 2020(IANS):
A Delhi court on Thursday sought Action Taken Report (ATR) from Mandoli Jail authorities on an application filed by one of the death-row convicts in Nirbhaya rape case, Pawan Kumar Gupta, seeking registration of an FIR against two police personnel for allegedly physically assaulting him in jail last year.
Metropolitan Magistrate Prayank Nayak has sought the ATR from the jail authorities by April 8. "This order will have no bearing on the other matter. Hanging will not be stayed because of this," the judge clarified.
The court had yesterday sought a reponse from the jail authorities on the application in which Pawan had prayed for a direction to the Station House Officer (SHO) of Harsh Vihar Police Station to register a case against constable Anil Kumar and another unidentified police constable.
