    The Supreme Court on Friday posted for hearing the Central government’s appeal seeking separate hanging of the convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape-and-murder case for 2:00pm on February 11.

    The Centre had appealed in the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court’s order that dismissed its plea against the stay on execution of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya case. The Centre has also been seeking the permission to execute the four convicts separately.

    The Centre’s appeal was heard by a three-justice bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justices R. Bhanumathi, Ashok Bhushan and A.S. Bopanna. The Delhi High Court had on Wednesday set a week’s deadline for the convicts in the Nirbhaya case to avail the remaining remedies.

    The Centre had moved the Delhi High Court after a trial court had on January 31 stayed “till further orders” execution of the four convicts in the case.

    Of the four convicts, three, Mukesh Kumar Singh (32), Vinay Kumar Sharma (26) and Akshay Kumar (31) have exhausted all their legal options, including mercy pleas to the president. Only one convict, Pawan Gupta (25), has the option of filing a curative plea and mercy plea to the president.
