The Patiala House Court in Delhi on Wednesday delayed the issuance of death warrants to the accused in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape case. The case will be next heard on Jan. 7, 2020.
The court directed Tihar Jail authorities to issue a fresh notice for one week to the convicts in case they want to file more mercy petitions.
"The court has given them (convicts) time to seek a remedy. The court is only looking at their (convicts) rights and not ours. There is no guarantee that a judgement will be given on next date," Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi told ANI.
