Nirbhaya's mother accuses convicts' lawyer of delaying justice

Putting down the blame on the convicts' lawyer AP Singh, mother of 2012 Delhi gangrape victim on Friday said Singh is trying to delay justice by misguiding the court. The Patiala House Court on Monday issued fresh death warrants against four convicts while hearing a petition by the state and Nirbhaya's parents. During the hearing, convicts' lawyer AP Singh told the court that Vinay is on a hunger strike and his mental status is also not well. Singh also sought the court's direction to jail authorities for his health check-up and proper medical report.

"Convict's lawyer now does not have anything.. he is misguiding the court to delay the justice. Not Vinay Singh, it is he who needs rest. Vinay is absolutely fine... he is mentally stable," Asha Devi said. 

Earlier, Delhi High Court on February 5 granted a week's time to the four convicts to avail of all legal remedies available to them and said that the convicts cannot be hanged separately since they were convicted for the same crime.

The case pertains to the brutal gang-rape and killing of a 23-year-old paramedical student in a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012, by six people including a juvenile in Delhi. The woman had died at a Singapore hospital a few days later.

One of the five adults accused, Ram Singh, had allegedly committed suicide in the Tihar Jail during the trial of the case.
