Petition After Petition When Will It End?

Delhi's famous Nirbhaya gang rape and murder convicts are implementing new tactics every time to avoid hanging.  Recently President has rejected the mercy petition of Nirbhaya convict Mukesh Singh.  Mukesh has challenged the petition dismissed in the Supreme Court.  

The Supreme Court Justice R Bhanumathi and his bench will hear the petition at 12 noon today.  Earlier, a bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde had said that if the culprits are to be hanged on February 1, then the petition needs to be heard immediately.

 The mercy petition of convict Mukesh Singh was rejected by President Ram Nath Kovind on January 17, after which he has challenged the rejected petition in the Supreme Court.  

On Saturday, Mukesh Singh filed a petition demanding that the death sentence be commuted to life imprisonment. The Patiala House Court has issued a death warrant for the four convicts.  The culprits will be hanged at 6 am on February 1.  

Regarding the petition filed by Mukesh in the Supreme Court, Nirbhaya's mother has said that till when will the guilty plea heard.  The culprits have been playing with law but all the tricks to avoid hanging will fail.  I have full faith in the judiciary.
