Nirbhaya Case: No hanging on 22nd January; Court issues stay order



On January 7, the entire nation celebrated with happiness as the Patiala Court issued a death warrant to all the four convicts. However, one of the convicts Mukesh files a mercy petition due to which the Tis Hazari court judge announced a stay order on their hanging. He said: “I am not reviewing my order to pass a death warrant. There will be a stay on the execution of the death warrant since a mercy plea is there. Jail authorities just have to give me this report saying we will not hang them on January 22.”

The Delhi Government has rejected the plea. The petition now awaits the Ministry of Home Affairs’ recommendation. The President will then make a decision on the basis of two recommendations.
