Nirbhaya’s Rapists Will Hang, Supreme Court Rejects Convicts’ Plea

The four men guilty of raping and torturing a student on a moving bus in Delhi will hang, the Supreme Court said today, confirming its earlier decision and rejecting the convicts’ request for a life term.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan delivered its judgement on the review plea filed by Mukesh, 29, Pawan Gupta 22 and Vinay Sharma, 23, seeking reduction of their death sentence to a life term.

The gang-rape and killing of the 23-year-old medical student on December 16, 2012, provoked rage and shock across India and led to big changes to laws on sexual crimes against women.
