Pawan, a hangman from Meerut, on Wednesday conducted dummy execution of the Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case convicts at Tihar Jail in New Delhi.
The four convicts in the 2012 case -- Mukesh Singh, Akshay Singh Thakur, Pawan Gupta, and Vinay Sharma -- are scheduled to be hanged at 5:30 am on March 20.
A Delhi court on Tuesday dismissed a petition filed by Mukesh Singh seeking quashing of the death penalty claiming that he was not in Delhi when the crime was committed.
The case pertains to the brutal gang-rape and killing of a 23-year-old paramedical student in a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012, by six people including a juvenile in the national capital. The woman had died at a Singapore hospital a few days later.
