Crime Tihar gives Akshay, Vinay last chance to meet family

The Tihar Jail administration has informed the four convicts in the Nirbhaya case in writing about the status of their requests to meet their respective families one last time. According to a jail officer, Mukesh Singh and Pawan Gupta have exhausted the option. The jail administration has asked the two other convicts — Akshay Thakur and Vinay Sharma — when they want to meet their families.

A top officer of the Tihar Jail administration said, “We have written to the four convicts about their last meeting with their families. Mukesh and Pawan have been informed that they have met their families before the 1 February death warrant. Two other convicts Akshay and Vinay have been asked to tell when they want to meet their respective families for the last time.”

A total of three death warrants have been issued for the four convicts so far. However, on the two previous occasions, the execution had to be postponed due to legal reasons.

Meanwhile, convict Pawan Gupta has refused to meet Ravi Kazi, the lawyer that the court offered him after he had said he had lost confidence in AP Singh. Since the new death warrant was issued, there has been no conversation between the two. On 14 February, the trial court had appointed Kazi as the convict’s lawyer. Earlier, Pawan refused to take the services of a lawyer that the Delhi District Legal Service Authority (DLSA) provided.

Tihar had to postpone execution twice earlier

7 January: First death warrant with the order to hang the convicts at 7 AM on 22 January; a pending mercy plea of ​​a convict result in the cancellation of the warrant

17 January: Second death warrant with the order to hang the convicts at 6 AM on 1 February 1; the trial court stayed the execution on 31 January

17 February: Third death warrant with the order to hang the convicts at 6 AM on 3 March; the lawyer for the convicts said there was still a legal option left

Their execution looks inevitable now. Of the four convicts, Vinay Sharma has lost his composure, as Sirf News had reported.
