Nirbhaya convict Pawan Gupta files curative plea in SC

Feb 28, 2020 18:12 IST

One of the four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case - Pawan Kumar Gupta has moved a curative plea in the Supreme Court seeking commutation of his death penalty to life imprisonment. He is the lone convict among the four who has not exhausted his legal remedies of filing a curative petition and subsequent mercy plea with the President. His lawyer AP Singh told the court that the Gupta didn't know about the seven-day deadline to avail his legal options and therefore he didn't file either a curative petition or a mercy petition so far.
