Nirbhaya convicts given 7-day deadline for mercy plea

Nov 01, 2019 10:24 IST

The Tihar Jail administration has sent a notice to four convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape case asking them to apply for mercy plea before the President within seven days. According to them the convicts have exhausted all legal options except a mercy petition. Going by rules, if the convicts choose not to file a mercy petition before the President, prison authorities will issue them a death warrant. In 2017, the four convicts were sentenced to death in the Nirbhaya gangrape case.
