The hanging of the four convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case was scheduled for Tuesday (March 3). They were to be hanged at 6 am today in Tihar jail, Delhi but was delayed for the third time in six weeks by a court. The first date of execution was on January 22, then it was postponed to February 1 and then on February 17, the court gave another date for the execution i.e on March 3 but now it has been postponed till further orders. The court has deferred the hanging as the mercy plea of one of the convicts (Pawan Gupta) is still pending.

This has disappointed the entire nation including the celebs. Rishi Kapoor took to his Twitter handle to express his disappointment on the court order. Taking a dialogue from his movie ‘Damini’, Rishi tweeted, “Nirbhaya case. Tareekh pe tareekh,tareekh pe tareekh, tareekh pe tareekh- “Damini”. Ridiculous!”

As reported by PTI, Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana said the hanging cannot be carried because Pawan Gupta’s mercy plea is still pending before the President.

A senior jail official said, “We had made all the necessary arrangements for the execution of the four convicts which was scheduled for Tuesday at 6 am. Now, the execution has been postponed and we are waiting for the further order by the court.”
