Convict Mukesh Singh in Nirbhaya Case

Nirbhaya Case: Mukesh Singh convict of Nirbhaya reached Supreme Court after getting rejected from Delhi HC

News

Nirbhaya Case: Mukesh Singh, one of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case, has challenged the Delhi High Court’s decision in the Supreme Court. After the Delhi High Court dismissed the petition, Nirbhaya case convict Mukesh Singh moved the Supreme Court claiming that he was not in Delhi at the time of the crime in December 2012.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed Mukesh Singh’s plea, one of four accused in the gang-rape and murder. In this petition, he challenged the order of the lower court which rejected the claim that he was not in Delhi at the time of the crime on December 16, 2012.

Justice Brijesh Sethi had said that there is no basis for interfering with the detailed and reasoned order of the lower court. The High Court further stated that there is nothing on record to state that the trial, in this case, was affected due to the concealment of any evidence.
