New Delhi:

Asha Devi, the mother of Nirbhaya, said she was “not very happy” after a Delhi court on Monday issued fresh death warrants for March 3 at 6 am against four death row convicts in the gang-rape and murder case. Additional Session Judge Dharmender Rana issued fresh warrants against death row convicts -- Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Pawan Gupta (25), Vinay Kumar Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar (31). 

“I am not very happy as this is the third time that the death warrants have been issued. We have struggled so much, so I am satisfied that death warrants have been issued finally. I hope they (convicts) will be executed on March 3,” said Asha Devi.

The court was hearing the applications by Nirbhaya's parents and the Delhi government, seeking fresh death warrants for the convicts after the Supreme Court granted liberty to the authorities to approach the trial court for issuance of fresh date for the execution of these convicts.
