All the convicts who gang raped Nirbhaya have been hanged from the lower court to the Supreme Court, then the question arises in everyone’s mind that why the accused of Nirbhaya have not yet been hanged even after 7 years of this gruesome incident.
All the convicts who gang raped Nirbhaya have been hanged from the lower court to the Supreme Court, then the question arises in everyone’s mind that why the accused of Nirbhaya have not yet been hanged even after 7 years of this gruesome incident. has gone. In 2018 itself, the Supreme Court also rejected the appeal of the four convicts of the Nirbhaya case while upholding their death sentence.
After the appeal is rejected from the Supreme Court, these four have no special option to seek relief from the court. Curative petition is also applied in those rare cases in which you are able to find fundamental errors in the court’s judgment and it is clear that the court order can be overturned.
Regarding the punishment, Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi said, “I welcome the suggestion of the Delhi government to dismiss the mercy petition of one of the convicts in the Nirbhaya case.” I hope that the culprits will be hanged at the earliest.
Curative petition not legal right
However, in case of not applying curative petitions of the culprits, it can also be hanged because it is not their legal right to put curative petitions, but it is a legal option. If there is a curative petition in Nirbhaya’s case then she will be dismissed immediately. That is why curative petition has not been imposed by the culprits to prolong this matter.
The way forward is for amnesty, that if a mercy petition is made in front of the President after he is hanged from the Supreme Court and he accepts it, then the death sentence is often converted to life imprisonment.
Hope for mercy
The President will accept or reject the mercy petition, it is decided by the President using his discretion on the basis of the suggestion from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Law, but his chances are very less in this case. Because from the lower court to the Supreme Court, there is no mercy on this entire case on the culprits of Nirbhaya’s case. The barbarism of which Nirbhaya was gangraped has shaken the entire nation, there is no hope of getting relief from anywhere.
The question is still the same, why have not these four been hanged so far. So the reason for this is that neither has the legal option of curative petition been used till now. Apart from this, only one of the 4 has filed mercy petition with the President, but it is still pending with the President.
That is, if the President rejects the mercy petition or before that curative petition in the Supreme Court, then the way of hanging these four will be cleared. After which the session court has to issue a death warrant in this case, after getting the warrant, the jail administration executes the preparations to hang it.
How long will it take to hang?
Recently, Nirbhaya’s parents petitioned the Patiala House Court for the early execution of these four, on which the court has issued a notice to these four convicts to tell them by December 13 that the President in this case Whether you want to have mercy petition or curative petition in the Supreme Court, keep your side in front of the court.
That is, the hearing on December 13 in this case will be very important because the answer of these four filed in the court will decide how much more time is left to hang Nirbhaya’s convicts. That is, from the fast track court to the Supreme Court in this case, even if it has heard its order within 6 years, it is difficult to say how long it will take to hang.
