Nirbhaya's mom moves SC opposing review plea of convict

The mother of the victim in the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder case moved the Supreme Court today opposing the plea filed by one of the four death-row convicts seeking review of its 2017 judgement awarding him death penalty.

The counsel appearing for the victim's mother mentioned the matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde and said they are opposing convict Akshay Kumar Singh's review plea, which is scheduled to be heard by a three-judge bench on 17 December.

The apex court had on 9 July last year dismissed the review pleas filed by the other three convicts Mukesh (30), Pawan Gupta (23) and Vinay Sharma (24) in the case, saying no grounds have been made out by them for review of the 2017 verdict.
