4 Convicts In Nirbhaya Case To Be Hanged On Januar
All four men convicted of rape and murder of a young medical student, who came to be known as 'Nirbhaya', in Delhi in December 2012, will be hanged on January 22 at 7 am in Tihar jail, Delhi's Patiala House court said on Tuesday.

Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora, who issued the death warrants, pronounced the order and said the convicts can use their legal remedies within 14 days. The four death row convicts — Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta — were produced before the court through video conferencing.

The trial court had earlier directed Tihar jail authorities to seek within a week response from the four death row convicts as to whether they were filing mercy pleas against their executions with the President of India.

After the verdict was announced, Nirbhaya's parents say the Patiala House Court's decision to hang the four convicts will strengthen the trust of people in the judicial system and will serve as an example for the coming generations. 

Asha Devi, Mother of Nirbhaya says that this will not bring her daughter back but will bring closure.
