Hours after Supreme Court rejected the curative plea of Pawan Gupta, one of the convicts in the Nirbhaya Case, a Delhi Court refused to stay the execution of death sentences of all four convicts.
Gupta had filed a curative plea last Friday, seeking the changing of his death sentence to life imprisonment.
Making an official statement, the bench said:
The application for oral hearing is rejected. The application for stay of execution of death sentence is also rejected. The curative petition is dismissed.
The mercy petitions of three convicts – Mukesh, Vinay and Akshay – was already dismissed by the President earlier.
