The Supreme Court will hear the curative pleas filed by the convicts in the Delhi gang-rape and murder case on January 14.

The five-judge bench comprising NV Ramana, Arun Mishra, RF Nariman, R. Banumati and Ashok Bhushan will hear the petitions filed by the death row convicts Vinay Sharma and Mukesh.

It was stated in Vinay’s petition that the court ignored the young age and socio-economic background of the convict.

A Delhi court had issued death warrant to the four Nirbhaya convicts on January 7. Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora pronounced the judgment.

The convicts also have the additional option of submitting a mercy petition before the President of India. Vinay had already filed one before President Ram Nath Kovind, although he later said the the plea was sent without his permission.

If curative pleas and mercy petitions are rejected, the convicts will be hanged at 7am on January 22 in Tihar jail.

In December 2019, the Supreme Court had rejected the plea to review the death penalty of convict Akshay Singh. The court had said that the evidence provided by the convict’s lawyers were examined earlier by the trial court.

The 23-year-old physiotherapy girl was gang-raped by six men in Delhi on December 16, 2012. She later died on December 29, 2012 in a hospital in Singapore.

The prime accused, Ram Singh, allegedly committed suicide in Tihar jail. Another accused, who was a minor at that time, was sentenced to a three years’ imprisonment in a reform facility under the Juvenile Justice Act. He was released on December 20, 2015.
