Nirbhaya gangrape: Supreme Court to continue hearing over convicts’ appeals

The Supreme Court on Monday will continue the hearing over the appeals filed by the four convicts in the brutal Nirbhaya gang rape case of December 16th 2012. The convicts – Akshay, Pawan, Vinay Sharma and Mukesh – have challenged the Delhi High Court order which had sentenced them to the gallows, after keeping in view the fact that it was a rarest of the rare case. Earlier also the trial court had sentenced all the four convicts to death penalty. The matter is now at present being heard by the Apex Court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra and Justices R. Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan.
