The horrifying rape case of ‘Nirbhaya’ which took place in 2012 still has its convicts to be hanged. So many years later, after the court passing the judgement of their death sentence, Vinay Sharma one of the convicts is still trying to harm himself in the jail which is said to be his attempt in delaying the execution.
Vinay has tried to harm himself for the second time; the first time was earlier this month when he reportedly had banged his head on the wall of his cell. And, just a few days to the execution of his hanging has again tried to harm himself by swallowing staple pins this time. It is said that all of his attempts have been to delay his execution.
However, the officials present at the incident site managed to save the convicted rapist at the right time & later even took him to the prison hospital for treatment. If hitting his head on the wall was not enough; he had even tried to hurt his hand, but the police-in-charge present at that timestopped him in doing that. After being taken to the hospital, he was released post getting a first-aid.
In a petition filed by Vinay,where he had asked to provide him with high-level medical treatment, Delhi court dismissed the same on Saturday, & said, “General anxiety and depression in case of a death row convict is obvious. In the case at hand, evidently, adequate medical treatment and psychological help have been provided to the condemned convict”.
The jail authorities have even served a notice to Vinay & Akshay’s family members for the last chance to meet them before their execution. And, ahead to their earlier date of execution, Pawan & Mukesh have had their final meeting on January, 31 with their family members.
According to a senior jail official apart from the regular meeting of twice in a week for all of the convicts, Akshay & Vinay have also been asked to indicate the date for their last meeting. Officials also noticed that since the time the date for their execution was announced, Vinay’s behaviour turned violent.
One of the officials said that, “The convicts are on round-the-clock surveillance and officials are also keeping an eye through the CCTV cameras.”
