Supreme Court rejects 2012 Delhi gang rape case convict’s plea says ‘all his remedies exhausted’

Convict Mukesh Singh had moved the Supreme Court earlier in the day claiming he was not in Delhi when the crime took place on December 16, 2012.

The Supreme Court on Thursday stated that one of the four death-row convicts, Mukesh Singh, in the 2012 Delhi gang rape and murder case, has exhausted all his remedies and that no fresh evidence can be entertained at this level. The apex court rejected his plea.

Mukesh Singh had moved the Supreme Court earlier in the day claiming he was not in Delhi when the crime took place on December 16, 2012.

The top court today said that it does not find any merit in Singh’s plea and therefore his petition cannot be entertained.

Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed Singh’s plea that challenged a trial court order which rejected his claim that he was not in the national capital when the crime was committed.

The high court on Wednesday said there were no grounds to interfere in the detailed and reasoned order of the trial court.
