The Delhi based Tihar jail authorities have despatched a legal notice to the 4 left convicts of the 2012 Nirbhaya Gangrape of Delhi. In the legal notice, the authorities have asked the 4 convicts to appeal to the supreme authority of the country, President of India, if they wish to, for their mercy petition against their pending death sentence. “It is hereby informed that, in case, you have not filed the mercy petition and if you wish to file it, you can file it within 7 days of the receipt of this notice, through prison authorities, failing which it will be presumed that you are not willing to file mercy petition and the jail administration will initiate further necessary legal proceedings as per law,” read the statement from the notice sent to the convicts.
