A 5-judge bench of the Supreme Court will consider tomorrow the curative petitions of Vinay Sharma and Mukesh,  two of the four convicts awaiting execution of death penalty in the Nirbhaya gang rape-murder case.

The bench comprising Justices N V Ramana, Arun Mishra, R F Nariman, R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan will consider the petitions in chamber at 1.45 PM tomorrow

On January 7,  Additional Sessions Judge, Patiala House Court in Delhi had issued death warrants for their hanging on January 22.

The curative petitions of Vinay Sharma and Mukesh were filed after that.

The other two convicts are Akshay Singh and Pawan Gupta.

Last month, SC bench comprising Justices Banumathi, Ashok Bhushan and A S Bopanna had dismissed the review plea of convict Akshay, after which the Delhi court has issued death warrant against the convicts. The review petitions of other three convicts were dismissed in July 2018.

The death penalty was upheld by the Supreme Court on May 5, 2017.

On December 16-17 night, 2012, a paramedico student was gang-raped in a moving bus by the convicts. Few days after, the victim had succumbed to the brutal injury caused to her by them.

Prime accused Ram Singh had committed suicide in the Tihar jail in March 2013.
