No further directions required on lawyer's plea in Nirbhaya case: Delhi court


A Delhi court today said no further directions were required on a plea by the lawyer of the death row convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape case alleging the prison authorities were not handing over certain documents required to file mercy and curative petitions.

Disposing of the petition, Additional Sessions Judge Ajay Kumar Jain said the convicts' lawyer can take pictures of the relevant documents, diary, and paintings from the Tihar Jail authorities.

The Public Prosecutor, appearing for the Delhi Police told the Additional Sessions Judge that Tihar Jail authorities have already supplied all the relevant documents sought by the lawyer of the death row convicts in Nirbhaya case. He told the court that the convicts are only adopting delaying tactics.

The Supreme Court recently dismissed the curative petitions of the other two convicts -- Vinay and Mukesh Singh (32). Mukesh's mercy petition was rejected by the President earlier this month. (AIR NEWS)
