Sanjay Singh gives notice in Rajya Sabha about the demand to speed up the death sentence of Nirbhaya's convicts

NEW DELHI: The AAP parliamentarian issued a Zero Hour notice on Tuesday to expedite the death sentence of those convicted of rape in Delhi in 2012.

Last week, a Delhi court stayed until he ordered the execution of the four convicts, Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta and, which was scheduled for February 1.

The case concerns the rape in group and the brutal murder of a 23-year-old paramedic student in a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012, by six people, including a minor, in Delhi. The woman had died in a hospital in Singapore a few days later.

Allegedly, one of the five accused adults, Ram Singh, committed suicide in jail during the trial of the case.
