A Delhi Court will hear tomorrow a plea seeking stay on the execution of death penalty of the four convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case.

The counsel for the four death row convicts filed a petition today seeking stay on their death penalty, saying the second mercy plea of one of them is still pending. Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana issued notices to the Tihar jail authorities and the police on the plea and said he will hear the case tomorrow.

Convict Akshay Singh had filed a second mercy petition before President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday. On the same day, another convict, Pawan Gupta had also moved the Supreme Court with a curative petition against the dismissal of his review plea rejecting his juvenility claim.  


The convicts -- Mukesh Singh (32), Pawan (25), Vinay Sharma (26) and Akshay (31) -- are scheduled to be hanged on March 20 at 5.30 am. The execution of the convicts has already been rescheduled three times.
