Nirbhaya convicts to be executed on March 3, says Delhi Court

A Delhi court on Monday issued fresh death warrants against the four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case.

All the four convicts will be executed on March 3 at 6am.

The death warrant was issued after the Tihar jail authorities informed the trial court that three of the four convicts have exhausted all legal options.

This is the third time that death warrants have been issued against Mukesh Kumar Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Kumar Sharma and Akshay Kumar.

All four men were convicted and sentenced to death for raping a 23-year-old paramedic student in a moving bus in the national capital on the intervening night of December 16-17, 2012.

She passed away at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore while undergoing the treatment.
