Nirbhaya case convicts, who are to be hanged at 6 am tomorrow for the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape-murder case, won't be hanged tomorrow as Delhi court stayed the execution of the four convicts and deferred the matter till further orders. Earlier in the day, President Ram Nath Kovind rejected the mercy petition of Pawan, one of the convicts in the case. However, Pawan's curative plea was also rejected by the Supreme Court.
