The death warrants were first issued for January 22

A sessions court in Delhi on Monday ruled that the four convicts in the 2012 Delhi gangrape case would be executed at 6am, local time on March 3, NDTV reported. The court was hearing a petition seeking a fresh death warrant against the four.

Additional Session Judge Dharmender Rana issued the fresh warrants for execution. The death warrants were first issued for January 22, and then postponed to February 1 because of the mercy pleas filed by two of the convicts.

After the verdict, the woman’s mother Asha Devi told ANI that they have struggled a lot in the case. “I am not very happy as this is the third time that death warrant has been issued,” she added. “We have struggled so much, so I am satisfied that death warrant has been issued finally. I hope they [convicts] will be executed on March 3.”

At the start of the hearing, Special Public Prosecutor Rajiv Mohan apprised the court about the current status of the case and said that three convicts in the case have exhausted their legal remedies. He added that the Delhi High Court’s February 5 judgement to give the convicts seven days to exhaust their remedies is over.
