Nirbhaya convicts will be hanged on Feb 1 at 6 am, new death warrant issued

A Delhi court today issued fresh death warrants for all the four convicts in the Nirbhaya rape and murder case. The court quashed the earlier death warrant scheduled for January 22. According to the new death warrant, the four convicts — Mukesh, Pawan, Akshay, Vinay — will be hanged on February 1 at 6 am. The judgment comes after the Tihar jail authorities sought issuance of fresh death warrants against the court convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case.
