The Supreme Court will hear on Tuesday the government’s request for separate hanging of the four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case.
The government had challenged the Delhi High Court verdict dismissing its plea against the stay on the execution of the four men.
The government had wanted notices to be sent to the four convicts. A bench headed by Justice R Bhanumathi did not heed to the government’s request, saying it would further delay the matter.
“The nation’s patience has been tested enough, the Supreme Court will have to lay down law on this, the government’s lawyer Tushar Mehta said.
