After Supreme Court rejected curative petition of convicts in 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape case, convicts' lawyer AP Singh said that further legal remedies will be sought. He said, "We will talk to our client and take further legal remedies. It is a media trial." Meanwhile, Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi, termed it 'big day'. She said, "This is a big day for me. I had been struggling for the last 7 years. But the biggest day will be 22nd January when they (convicts) will be hanged." A Delhi court has pronounced execution of convicts to be held on January 22, at 7 AM. The last resort for convicts is a mercy plea.
