Nirbhaya case: Fresh death warrant issued for convicts hanging on February 1

A fresh death warrant has been issued on Friday (January 17) for the hanging of Nirbhaya rape and murder convicts on February 1 at 6 am.

The hanging of all the four convicts will take place at the same time in Delhi’s Tihar jail.

Meanwhile, alleging foul play in the matter, Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi on Friday has said that political parties were playing politics over the sensitive issue and deliberately delaying the execution of four convicts.

“It has been seven years and we didn`t get justice. The government can`t see our pain. Parties are playing politics on my daughter`s death. I think the hanging is being deliberately postponed,” Asha Devi told.
