Redress of grievances through procedure established by law is the hallmark of any civilised society, said a Delhi court as it “postponed till further orders” the hanging of the four convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya case. 

Additional sessions judge Dharmendra Rana stated, “The courts of this country cannot afford to adversely discriminate against any convict, including death row convicts, in pursuit of his legal remedies by turning a Nelson’s eye towards him.”

The decision came amid a flurry of petitions by the convicts to stall their hanging.

The counsel for Nirbhaya’s parents argued that the convicts were trying to thwart justice by adopting delaying tactics.
