Nirbhaya Convicts Silent On Last Wishes Ahead Of February 1 Hanging

The four Nirbhaya case convicts, who are to be hanged on February 1, have given no reply to questions about meeting their family for the last time or willing their property, sources at Tihar jail said on Thursday. The rules allow death row convicts to choose which family member they want to meet for the last time and when. Convicts are also asked to state whether they want to leave their property to anyone. Sources say on both counts, the convicts - Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta - were silent. This was seen to suggest that they remain hopeful of buying more time.
