The Delhi High Court has ruled the four 2012 gang-rape convicts who sentenced to death should exercise their legal remedies within the next seven days after which the authorities should act in accordance with the law.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait of the Delhi High Court ruled on Wednesday, reports Hindustan Times.
Justice Kait, however, rejected the Centre's appeal against the trial court's order that put off their execution on February 1 and the request to hang two of them - Mukesh Singh and Vinay Sharma - because they had exhausted their legal options, reports Hindustan Times.
"I am of the opinion that all their death warrants have to be executed together," the judge ruled.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait, who had held a special hearing on Sunday at the Centre's request, said the convicts were taking shelter of Article 21 which provides protection to them till their last breath.
