No hanging of Nirbhaya convicts tomorrow: Delhi Court

Hours before they were to hang, the four Nirbhaya convicts got another last minute reprieve as a Delhi court deferred their execution. They will not be hanged until further court orders.The decision came amid a flurry of petitions by the convicts to stall their hanging. A new petition was filed today before the Supreme Court. Pawan Gupta's claim of being a minor at the time of the 2012 gang-rape and killing was dismissed by the Supreme Court for the second time in two weeks. He had asked the court to review its decision last week, even though he had been told that once rejected, an age claim cannot be contested repeatedly.
