Tihar jail authorities on Thursday asked the four convicts of the Nirbhaya gangrape case about their last wish as the date of their hanging nears. The four convicts are to be hanged on February 1. The development came after the centre moved to the Supreme Court for fixing a seven ay deadline for the execution of the death penalty.

Delhi Court issued a fresh death warrant on January 17 for the hanging of 4 culprits Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh, Mukesh Singh and Pawan on February 1. After the hanging scheduled on January 22 was postponed due to pending petitions. The hanging was delayed due to filing of review, curative and mercy petitions over a period of time.
