Death penalty cold-blooded killing: Nirbhaya rapists ask SC to spare life

Death penalty cold-blooded killing: Nirbhaya rapists ask SC to spare life

The paramedic student was gangraped on the intervening night of December 16-17, 2012 inside a moving bus in South Delhi by six people and severely assaulted before being thrown out on streets naked.

The Supreme Court on Friday reserved the petitions filed by two of the four condemned convicts for a review of its 2017 verdict upholding the death penalty awarded to them in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case. The convicts have sought mercy, saying, "death penalty is a cold-blooded killing".

Another accused in the case, bus driver Ram Singh, had committed suicide in Tihar Jail, while a convicted juvenile, just days short of 18 he committed the crime, was sent to juvenile home.

On May 5 previous year, the Supreme Court had awarded death sentence to the four convicts and said the "brutal, barbaric and diabolic nature of the crime shook the conscience of humanity". She succumbed to her injuries on December 29, 2012 at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. He has come out of the reformation home after serving a three-year term.

Swiss electronics to help NASA Mars probe
If, for whatever reason, the launch is postponed on Saturday, the "window" for Mars mission will remain open until June 8th. They will study what NASA calls "fingerprints of the process of planet formation, buried deep in the Martian interior".

The counsel appearing for Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) objected to the arguments of Sharma's counsel and said: "Not even a single point raised by the petitioner has not been dealt with by the court". The counsel for Delhi Police opposed it saying everything has been settled in the judgement. "The juvenility issue has been dealt with by the trial court already".

On January 22, the court had asked advocate A P Singh, who is representing Akshay, Pawan and Vinay, as to why a review petition had not been filed on behalf of Akshay. Akshay, the fourth convict, has not filed the review petition yet.

The apex court, while upholding the conviction in the case, had said that the "brutal, barbaric and diabolic nature" of the crime could create "tsunami of shock" to destroy a civilised society. The review plea filed by their counsel is the last legally exhaustible option before the convicts.
