Supreme Court today dismissed a Curative Petition filed by Pawan Kumar Gupta, one of the co-convicts of 2012 Delhi Gang Rape Case. Pawan had filed the curative petition to commute his death sentence into life imprisonment claiming that he was a minor at the time of the incident.

A six judge bench of the apex court comprising of Justices N. V. Ramana, Arun Mishra, R. F. Nariman, R. Banumathi, Ashok Bhushan and A. S. Bopanna dismissed the petition stating that, “In our opinion, no case is made out within the parameters indicated in the decision of this Court in Rupa Ashok Hurra vs. Ashok Hurra & Another”.

Earlier, three of 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.

It came 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Court ordered the petition filed by convict Mukesh Singh seeking action against his former lawyer Vrinda Grover to be withdrawn.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, 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.

All the four convicts are scheduled to be hanged on March 20 at 5.30 am after a trial court in Delhi issued fresh death warrants for the fourth time.
