After exhausting all their legal remedies, finally a date has been decided for the execution of all four Nirbhaya rape case convicts.

Issuing a fresh death warrant to the convicts, a Delhi court has set a new date for their hanging: February 1, 2020 at 6 AM.

The Indian President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday afternoon rejected the mercy plea of Mukesh Singh, one of the four men convicted in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case.

This rejection came a few hours after the Union Home Ministry had sent the petition to the President.
