New Delhi, Jan 17 (IANS)
A court here on Friday issued fresh death warrants against the four convicts – Akshay Singh, Pawan Gupta, Mukesh and Vinay Sharma – in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case.
Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora fixed February 1 as the date of execution of the four death row convicts. The convicts will be hanged at 6 a.m.
The move came after the prosecution moved an application seeking issuance of fresh death warrants following the rejection of the mercy plea of convict Mukesh by the President.
