National Human Rights Commission dismissed the petition filed on behalf of Mukesh, who is one of the co-convicts in the 2012 gang rape case. The NHRC did not find any substance in the petition thereby denied taking cognizance and dismissed the petition.

The mother of Mukesh had fuled the complaint before the NHRC seeking urgent intervention of NHRC to prevent unlawful execution of her son Mukesh.

The complaint stated that all the convicts have been wrongly implicated and that there has been many flaws in the investigation that was carried out by the police in the matter of custodial death of one of the co-convicts Ram Singh. The complaint also stated that execution of death sentence warrants would be a miscarriage of justice.

Last week, three of the four convicts in the case approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) seeking a stay on the execution of their death sentence, news agency ANI reported.

The three convicts who approached the ICJ are Akshay, Pawan and Vinay.

It had come shortly after the Supreme Court ordered the petition filed by convict Mukesh Singh seeking action against his former lawyer Vrinda Grover to be withdrawn.

Mukesh Singh had also appealed in the Supreme Court seeking restoration of all his legal remedies, alleging that his lawyers had misled him.

The plea moved through advocate ML Sharma, had asked for a CBI probe into alleged “criminal conspiracy” hatched by the Centre along with Delhi government and Vrinda Grover, who was amicus curiae in the case.

Another plea is pending before the Supreme Court challenging a Delhi High Court’s order which said death row convicts cannot be hanged separately, on March 20.

The four convicts are slated to be hanged on March 20 at 5:30 am.
