One of the four convicts in the 2012’s Nirbhaya Gang rape and brutal murder case has, allegedly, striken his head against the jail wall to injure himself. The jail authorities reportedly informed that Vinay Sharma, one of the four death row convicts, has tried to injure himself by striking his head against the wall of his cell. He was stopped from further injuring himself by the warden in-charge for Vinay’s cell, a report claimed. He was further taken to a hospital where he was given the first aid treatment and discharged, the report further claimed.
The death row convict was in stable condition after the incident, as the jail authorities claimed to have conducted the psychometric test and Vinay responded well to it. This was in contrary to the claims made by the convict’s counsel, AP Singh. As per AP Singh, Vinay is mentally unstable after the fresh death warrant has been issued by the Delhi court on February 17. He stated, in a report, that the alleged incident of Vinay striking his head against the jail wall occured on February 16 and that, as per Vinay’s mother, Vinay failed to recognise his mother following the incident.
As per a jail official, the four death row convicts, following to the issuance of the fresh death warrant on February 17, have started behaving aggressively and there is a stark change in their behaviour. Vinay Sharma & Mukesh Singh, following to the issuance of the fresh death warrant on February 17, had also given up their meals but took it after much persuasion.
The four convicts, Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta & Akshay Thakur, in the Nirbhaya Gang Rape and ruthless murder case are in row for execution on March 3. It is, however, apprehensive of the execution since one of the convicts still hasn’t exhausted all his legal tools against the execution. As per a report citing Jail Manuals, the death penalty, scheduled for execution on March 3, may get affected if any of the convicts fall ill or gain obesity, in which case, their execution can only take place once they resume back to normalcy.
