Lucknow: Delhi's Tihar Jail has requested the services of hangman Pawan for the execution of the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder convicts, who are slated to hang on February 1, Uttar Pradesh's Director-General of Prison Anand Kumar said.

His services have been sought for January 31 and February 1, Mr Kumar said.

 

Pawan, a hangman from Meerut, had earlier said that he was ready to hang the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case.

"It will really give a great sigh of relief to me, to Nirbhaya's parents and to everyone else in the country when these convicts are hanged. These kinds of people should be hanged," he said.

A Delhi court had last week issued a fresh death warrant against the four death-row convicts in a Nirbhaya rape case who will now be executed on February 1 at 6 am.

Four convicts — Vinay, Akshay, Pawan, and Mukesh — were convicted and sentenced to death for raping a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus in Delhi on the intervening night of December 16-17, 2012.
