Nirbhaya Case: Convicts Approach International Court of Justice Seeking Stay on Execution
GUWAHATI: Three convicts have approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) seeking stay on the execution of their death sentence.
The three convicts who approached the ICJ are Akshay, Pawan and Vinay.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected the plea of Mukesh Singh seeking restoration of all his legal remedies alleging that his earlier lawyers misled him. The top court held Singh's plea as not maintainable saying that the review petition and the curative petition have both been dismissed in the case.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana fixed March 20 as the new date of execution.
