Nirbhaya case: SC defers hearing on separate hangings
The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing to Friday after the Centre's plea seeking separate execution of the convicts of the Nirbhaya case. The Apex court while reacting to the plea of both center and Delhi government seeking separate execution, said it is not possible. The Supreme Court has heard the petition filed by Vinay Sharma, one of the convicts, who has questioned the mercy petition rejection by the President. The court is likely to give a judgment tomorrow on this aspect. Recently, the Delhi court stating that one of the death row convicts Pawan Gupta is entitled to legal aid has drawn the attention of the media and the people. Nirbhaya's mother has expressed her resentment over the legal proceedings.
