New Delhi. Nirbhaya Gang Rape Case has taken a new twist. Nirbhaya’s convict and his lawyers are constantly running new tricks to avoid being hanged. The case has now reached the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The lawyer for Nirbhaya’s convicts, AP Singh, has written to the international court seeking a stay on the hanging on March 20.

According to media reports, AP Singh, the lawyer for the convicts, has written a letter to the ICJ. The letter said that the hanging of Nirbhaya convicts should be stopped on March 20. Also, ICJ should ask all the records of the lower court, so that they can put their side in the international court. Reports said that the letter from lawyer AP Singh was delivered to the Embassy of the Netherlands, which has been sent to the ICJ. However, there has been no response from the ICJ yet on the matter. It is also being told that three out of four convicts Akshay Singh, Pawan Gupta, and Vinay Sharma have reached the refuge of the ICJ. But, it is believed that this is the new trick of the convicts of Nirbhaya to avoid hanging.

It is worth mentioning that Delhi’s Patiala House Court has issued a death warrant to hang Nirbhaya’s culprits at 5:30 am on March 20. Three death warrants have been issued against Nirbhaya’s convicts earlier. However, Nirbhaya’s convict managed to postpone the hanging date on one pretext. Before this, the guilty Mukesh Singh was again dealt a blow from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court rejected his plea seeking action against his first lawyer.
