A Delhi court on Thursday turned down another manoeuvre adopted by the convicts in Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case and dismissed an application seeking a stay on their execution on the grounds of pending legal remedies.

The four convicts - Vinay, Mukesh, Akshay, and Pawan - will now be hanged by the noose on Friday, March 20 at 5:30 am for brutally raping and murdering a 23-year-old physiotherapy student, later dubbed as 'Nirbhaya', on December 16, 2012.

The death-row convicts, represented by advocate AP Singh, had knocked on the doors of the trial court two days before the execution seeking a stay on their hanging.
