Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - The Supreme Court had earlier dismissed the curative pleas of two of the convicts.
The Delhi government on Wednesday told the high court that execution of the death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case will not take place on January 22 as a mercy plea has been filed by one of them. The four convicts -- Vinay Sharma (26), Mukesh Kumar (32), Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and Pawan Gupta (25) -- are to be hanged on January 22 at 7am in Tihar jail. A Delhi court had issued their death warrants on January 7.
