Nirbhaya case: Supreme Court dismisses curative petition filed by convict Pawan Gupta

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the curative petition filed by Pawan Gupta, one of the convicts in the 2012 Delhi gangrape and murder case. Pawan is one of the four convicts on death row for the gang-rape of a 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012. The victim succumbed to fatal internal injuries on December 29 of the same year. In his plea, convict Pawan Gupta had claimed that his death sentence is commuted to life imprisonment claiming that he was a minor at the time of the incident. Pawan had first filed a review petition in the Supreme Court in December of 2017 along with co-convict Vinay Sharma. The apex court had dismissed the petitions in July of 2018.
