SC dismisses Nirbhaya case convict Vinay Sharma's plea challenging rejection of mercy petition

PTI
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case convict Vinay Sharma's plea challenging rejection of his mercy petition by the President.

One of the four death row convicts in the 2012 rape case, Sharma had alleged in his plea that his mercy petition was dealt in a "mala fide" manner.
 
A bench of Justices R Banumathi, Ashok Bhushan and A S Bopanna said no ground of judicial review of rejection of mercy petition is made out by Sharma. The Apex court said, all material including Sharma's medical report placed before President who applied his mind in rejection of mercy plea. 

The top court rejected the contention of Sharma that he is mentally ill and said his medical report suggests he is stable.

The trial court had on January 31 stayed the execution of four convicts in the case, till further orders.
