A Delhi court on Thursday issued fresh death warrant for the four convicts of the Nirbhya gang rape and murder case. The Nirbhaya case rapists will now be hanged on March 20 at 5:30 am.
Pawan Gupta, one of the four death row convicts in the gang rape case, had filed a mercy plea with President Ram Nath Kovind, which was rejected by him. Currently, there is no plea by any of the convicts pending before any court and they have exhausted all their legal remedies.
Reacting to the new execution date, Nirbhya's mother said "The morning of March 20 will be morning of our life." She further added "While dying Nirbhya asked to ensure they get such punishment that such crime is not repeated ever."
