Nirbhaya rape case convicts shifted to Tihar jail.



The fourth convict in the Nirbhaya rape case has been shifted to Tihar Jail after one of the accused Pawan Kumar Gupta was moved from Mandoli jail in Delhi.

He is currently lodged in jail number 2 of Tihar, sources said. This has led to speculation that the four accused are likely to be hanged soon.



The other three convicts – Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, and Akshay are already lodged in Tihar jail.

Earlier, Vinay Sharma, one of the accused in the rape case, had moved a plea before President Ram Nath Kovind asking for the immediate withdrawal of the mercy petition sent by the Union Home Ministry to the President.


Sharma claimed that he sought the withdrawal since the aforementioned petition has neither his signature nor was it ever authorised by him.

Normally, a convict is hanged 14 days after the rejection of mercy plea by President, however, the date of the execution could be brought forward if the Centre and state government thinks that the waiting period of 14 days could create law & order issues.


Nirbhaya, a 23-year-old paramedic, was brutally gang-raped on December 16, 2012, inside a running bus by six people in Delhi. The shocking incident left the nation stunned and forced the government to tighten the rape laws.

The four rapists were given death sentence by the trial court, which was later upheld by the High court and the Supreme Court.

  1. now the law should be changed for the rapist. rapist should be hanged by the neck in an open place where everyone should be satisfied. & it should take place soon as the rapist conformation

  4. The one who was Juveline should also be hanged if he can do crime now he should be hanged. Total 7 years Wasted by Govt of India – If there is no severe laws then this incidents will keep on happening . What is the Law aod order of India – its a shame on the complete nation.

  5. People have almost forgotten the Nirbhaya case as more brutal rape cases have taken place now. BJP made such a big song/dance and dhol-baja against the congress govt but when the more brutal cases happened under their watch they have gone quiet. Hope justice will be meted out to Nirbhaya soon.

  6. A great move for these to e hanged…this should’ve been don the very next day…also the govt needs to take a point that human rights activists or any organisation is allowed to save the rapists when they cannot think of saving a victim…law has to be enforced that no human rights involves in any rape case to fight for a rapist…

  7. Why these too & fro shuttlement of arguments,in Nirbhaya Matter. Hang them ASAP.and save Govt,money on these hardened convicts.

  8. Despite of all efforts by the people of of the Nation and law enforcement agencies Why these four convicts are still alive. It has taken 7 years to execute the death penalty..Why ?

  9. Strange. These hooligans and vagabonds have been eating phokad jail ka khana for seven years. Perhaps that itself is torture knowing that they will be hanged for sure and the torture has been worth it.

  10. Seven years is a v.v.v.v long time. Imagine the mental torture for survivors/family members.
    Such heinous criminals should be hanged within 6 months of the crime.

  11. JUNGLE KA KANOON JIN RAPIST LOGO NE USE KIYA HAI, AISE LOGO KE LIYE 14 DAYS KYON RUKNA. TOD DO KANOON AND HANG THEM TILL DEATH.

  12. DON’T WASTE TIME AND HANG THEM WITH IMMIDIATE ACTION. AS ENOUGH TIME SPEND BEHIND THIS CONVICTS NOW NO MERCY TOWARD THESE GUILTY FELLOWS.

  13. WHILE ALL AGREE WITHOUT ANY DIFFERENCE THAT THEY ARE BEING PUNISHED FOR THE HEINOUS CRIME, WE MUST REMEMBER THAT JUSTICE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO TAKE ITS COURSE. GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE OR EXPRESSING EMOTIONAL VIEWS SHOULD BE AVOIDED AND LESSEN OUR RESPECT TO THE JUDICIARY.
    WE ARE A CIVILIZED SOCIETY AND HAVE EFFECTIVE LAWS ALLOW IT TO TAKE ITS OWN COURSE.

  14. Who should be responsible for tax payers money spent on these criminals for 7 years. Will judicatory of political class or executive or lawyers will pay from their salary / fee earned by them.
