New Delhi: Nirbhaya’s parents, on Monday, expressed hope that the four convicts in their daughter’s rape-and-murder case would finally be hanged on March 3, the latest execution date fixed by a court after two earlier death warrants were stayed.
“We hope the order (death warrant) is finally executed,” her mother said, just after a Delhi court issued fresh death warrants against the four convicts setting up their execution on March 3 at 6 am.
This is the third time that death warrants have been issued against Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay Kumar Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar (31).
The mother also expressed hope that the courts do not entertain any pleas to delay the execution any further.
Nirbhaya’s father said that now that the death warrant has been issued, they have been receiving congratulatory messages stating their seven-year-old struggle for justice will finally come to an end.
He, however, was also a bit cautious.
“We are happy with the issuance of death warrant. But our struggle will continue till they are hanged,” the father said.
The family has been waging a battle to see the perpetrators involved in crime against their daughter are punished.
