Nirbhaya case convict alleges sexual assault in jail

Jan 29, 2020 07:38 IST

Mukesh Singh, one of the convicts in Nirbhaya case, has told the Supreme Court that he has been sexually assaulted in the jail. Singh has challenged the rejection of his mercy plea by the President in the Supreme Court. The court rejected his request to show documents to the President that he claimed would prove he was "beaten and sexually assaulted" in jail. Mukesh Singh has also claimed that he was kept in solitary confinement even before his mercy petition was rejected and this was against prison rules.
