Tihar jail authorities on Thursday said the four death row convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape-murder case did not reply anything when asked about their last wish.
The four convicts, who are set to be hanged on February 1, were asked on Thursday if they wished to meet their family members or will their properties.
On January 17 the four convicts were issued fresh death warrants for the hanging Vinay Sharma (26), Akshay Kumar Singh (31), Mukesh Kumar Singh (32) and Pawan Kumar (26).
Ahead of execution, prison rules allow death convicts to meet one family member of their choice.
“Following the rule, we asked each of the four convicts about meeting their family members. They were also asked if they wanted to leave their property to anyone,” Tihar jail sources said.
“They, however, remained silent on both the offers,” the sources added.
“Since they have not replied to the summons, the authorities have allowed the families to meet them twice a week,” sources added.
Sources further added that the four convicts have been eating less and are also reportedly tense. They are made to undergo medical examination daily. Their medical reports are normal.
The mental health of the Nirbhaya rape and murder convicts is also normal, the sources said.
No fresh curative or mercy petition has been filed by any other death row convicts.
Reportedly, Tihar Jail has conducted three trials of dummy execution.
Originally the execution was scheduled for January 22, which was postponed after a mercy plea was filed in the Supreme Court.
