seeking a life imprisonment, considering the fact that he was a minor when the Nirbhaya incident took place. Recently, the Supreme Court dismissed the curatorial petition filed by Pawan Gupta and issued a sensational judgment.
Pawan said he was 16 years and 2 months old in 2012 for the Nirbhaya incident. Pawan Gupta filed a petition demanding that his execution be commuted to life imprisonment. His advocate AP Singh asked the court to stay on the death warrant issued by the trial court. Pawan said that so far, he has not used any legal opportunities.
However, the latest Supreme Court hit on the latest Pawan petition has paved the way for punishment. But another accused Akshay Kumar has filed a petition in the Patiala House Court in Delhi seeking a stay on death warrants. Many legal experts feel that the verdict on the petition will be finalized after the court’s verdict.
