Nirbhaya Case: No Further Directions Required Says Court:- The Delhi Court today said that no further directions are needed about the plea by the lawyers as already a death warrant has been issued for the convicts in the Nirbhaya rape case. The lawyer of the convicts argued that the Tihar Jail delayed in producing the needed documents for the two other convicts as they wished to file mercy petition. Additional Sessions Judge Ajay Kumar Jain said the convicts’ lawyer can take pictures of the relevant documents, diary and paintings from the Tihar jail authorities.
The public prosecutor made it clear that the Tihar jail authorities already produced all the relevant documents and the convicts are keen on delaying the hanging through their tactics. “The entire process is to defeat the law. We have already supplied all the documents. We procured all the documents from all the jails where they went,” the counsel said. AP Singh, the advocate of Vinay alleged that his client was slow poisoned and was hospitalized but the medical reports are not presented.
As per the court's order, the hanging will take place on February 1st at 6 AM. The mercy petitions are rejected after which the date was fixed.
