Nirbhaya’s killers to hang: Wait, there are two minor legal hurdles left

nirbhaya-hangmanNew Delhi, Mar 06: An ordeal is set to end on March 20, 5.30 am, if the hanging of Nirbhaya’s killers goes through.

A Delhi court fixed a fresh date for the hanging after the mercy petition filed by Pawan was rejected by the President of India on Wednesday. It is mandatory to give a death row convict 14 days time, once a mercy petition is rejected. Incidentally this is for the fourth time that a date has been set for the hanging since January.
