Trial Hanging Carried Out In Tihar

The convicts of the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case will be hanged at 7 am on January 22, but Gangaram is hanged before the convicts of Nirbhaya are hanged.  In fact, whenever a convict is hanged, before that many judicial procedures have to be passed.  First the orders for hanging of the convict is taken, then after this the hanging rope is prepared according to the measurement.  After that a dummy is hanged.  In the dummy hanging, an effigy of stone is made, whose weight is one and a half times more than the body weight of the convict.  By hanging this dummy effigy, the strength of the noose is checked.  Most of the dummy effigies in Indian jails are named Gangaram.

 It is said that Lord Ram and Ganga water are important for a deceased.  Hence, the effigy was named Gangaram after combining the words Ganga from Lord Ram and Ganga water.  That's why the dummy effigy in jails is named Gangaram.
