New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind rejects mercy plea of Nirbhaya case convict Vinay Kumar Sharma: Home Ministry official

The trial court on January 17 issued black warrants for the second time for the execution of all the four convicts in the case -- Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Pawan (25), Vinay (26) and Akshay (31) -- in Tihar jail at 6 am on February 1.

However, on Friday a Delhi court postponed the execution till further order.

They had originally been sentenced to hang on January 22 but that was postponed after Mukesh Singh's mercy plea was rejected.
