Nirbhaya’s parents demand fast tracking of hanging process of rape convicts

The infamous ‘Nirbhaya’ gang rape may have raised the issue of women’s security but the parents appear to be losing patience.

Parents of ‘Nirbhaya’, the 23-year-old paramedic student gang-raped and murdered in December 2012, have requested a Delhi court to fast-track the procedure to hang all four convicts Delhi’s Patiala House Court will hear the petition on March 2.

The Supreme Court confirmed that the four men responsible will be hanged.

The court, which had upheld the death sentence for the men in May last year, turned down a petition from the convicts that they be given life term.

The convicts are Mukesh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Kumar Singh.

Another convicts, Ram Singh, had hanged himself in the jail and another, a juvenile, was given the maximum sentence of three years’ imprisonment in a reform facility.
He was released after serving his sentence.

The student was raped on the intervening night of December 16 and 17, 2012 inside a moving bus in south Delhi by six people.

She was also brutalized later by the men as she protested.
