A request by the Tihar Jail authorities seeking fresh warrants to hang all the four convicts was turned down by a court in Delhi today. The Delhi High Court on February 5 allowed the convicts a week to look exercise any legal option left with them. "I concur with the argument of advocate Vrinda Grover and dismiss the application of Tihar Jail as bereft of merit," the judge at Delhi's Patiala House court said today.
