Nirbhaya case: Delhi court postpones execution of death warrants of all convicts till further order

The court did not agree with the Tihar jail authorities which had challenged the application of three condemned prisoners in the case seeking a stay on their execution.
The black warrants for execution of the death sentence against Pawan Gupta, Vinay Kumar Sharma, Akshay Kumar and Mukesh Kumar Singh, were issued on January 17.
The convicts' lawyer argued that rules dictate that when one convict's plea is pending the others can't be hanged.
