All four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case will hang at 5.30 am on Friday as decided.
The Patiala House Court on Thursday rejected all petitions of the convicts, Akshay Thakur, 31, Pawan Gupta, 25, Vinay Sharma, 26, and Mukesh Singh, 32, ND TV reported.
The four men have been convicted for the gang-rape and murder of a young woman who was brutally assaulted in a moving bus in Delhi in December 2012.
They had requested that their execution be stopped, claiming that they still had legal remedies left.
“No legal remedies are pending as of now. Pawan and Akshay’s second mercy was also not entertained by the President of India,” public prosecutor Irfan Ahmad told the court.
“My friend can move 100 applications, but these are not strictly legal remedies,” he said.
There was much drama outside the court when a convict’s wife, who has sought a divorce, fainted outside the Patiala House court complex.
AP Singh, the advocate for the Nirbhaya case convict has said that he will challenge the Delhi court’s refusal to stay the executions of the four men.
