New Delhi, Feb 6: The Supreme Court agreed to hear on Friday the Centre’s appeal on separate hanging of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case.

The Ministry of Home Affairs had moved the Supreme Court challenging the Delhi High Court’s verdict that the four convicts have to be hanged together and not separately.

As their fate has been decided by a common order, death warrants of all the convicts be executed together and not separately, the apex court said.

All the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case are to be executed together and not separately, the Delhi High Court had said on Wednesday.

The high court had also set a seven-day dead line for the convicts to avail any remaining remedies.

Hours after the high court order was pronounced, the Centre and Delhi government moved the Supreme Court challenging it.
