Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana at Patiala House Court stayed the hanging of four convicts in the 2012 Delhi gangrape and murder case until further orders.
The order was passed in lieu of the applications filed by the convicts to stay the execution of their death penalties scheduled on February 1 at 6 AM.
The stay of execution was sought on the ground that the convicts have not exhausted all available legal remedies. Mercy plea of one of the convicts, Vinay Sharma, has already been submitted to the President of India. Two other convicts, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta, have not yet availed the remedy of mercy plea.
Mukesh Singh, whose all legal remedies have been exhausted, also filed an application stating that he cannot be hanged in isolation when the legal remedies by the other three convicts are pending.
