Nirbhaya rape and murder case: Mukesh's mercy plea gets rejected by Delhi government

Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal has rejected the mercy plea of Mukesh, one of the convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya case.

The mercy plea was then forwarded to the Lieutenant Governor, who has now sent it to Union Ministry of Home Affairs.

The convicts were sentenced to death for raping a 23-year old woman in a moving bus in the national capital region on the cold night of December 16, 2012.

The victim, who was later given the name Nirbhaya, died in the hospital of Singapore where she had been airlifted for medical treatment.
