Nirbhaya Case: Death Row Convict Vinay Kumar Sharma Moves Curative Petition In Supreme Court

Bookmark

In a last ditch effort to escape the noose, Vinay Kumar Sharma, one of the four men sentenced to death in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case, filed a curative petition in the Supreme Court on Thursday.

A curative petition is the last legal remedy available to a convict.

On Tuesday, a Delhi court issued death warrants against Mukesh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and said they will be hanged on Jan. 22 at 7 a.m. in Tihar jail.
