New Delhi: Convict in the Nirbhaya gang rape case, Vinay tried to hurt himself inside the jail. The Tihar Jail official said that Vinay hurt himself by hitting his head against a wall in his cell on February 16. However, he has suffered minor injuries.
Patiala House Court of Delhi has issued a new death warrant for the convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case. According to the new death warrant, all the culprits will now be hanged at 6 am on March 3. Before this, the death warrant of the convicts has been issued twice. The date of hanging was first fixed on 22 January. The second date of hanging was fixed on 1 February. However, the lawyer of the convicts had it cancelled by applying legal stipulation.
Nirbhaya’s mother has consistently expressed her opposition to the delay in hanging. She was crying in the court premises after repeated postponement of hanging. On Monday, when the Supreme Court sentenced him to death, Nirbhaya’s mother said that “I am not very happy with this decision, because this is the third time when the death warrant was issued. We have struggled a lot so far, so I am satisfied that the death warrant has finally been issued. I hope the culprits will be hanged on 3 March.”
Before this, the court was also informed that Vinay Sharma, the other criminal in this case is on hunger strike in Tihar Jail. Vinay’s lawyer told the court that he was attacked in the jail and had suffered a head injury.
