The Supreme Court has dismissed the petition challenging the rejection of mercy plea of Nirbhaya convict Mukesh Singh. The verdict was pronounced on Wednesday by a three-judge bench headed by Justice R Banumathi. The court said there is no merit in the contention. "Alleged torture can't be a ground, all documents were placed before the President and he had taken them into consideration," the top court added.
