Earlier on May 4, 2018 the apex court had reserved its order on the plea of convicts seeking a review of its 2017 verdict upholding the death penalty awarded to them in the Nirbhaya gangrape case.

When asked her course of action if the convicts file a curative petition, Asha Devi, Jyoti's mother told media persons, "We will also follow the due process of law".

In its 2017 verdict, the Supreme Court had upheld the death sentence the Delhi High Court and trial court had awarded to the convicts for raping the 23-year-old in a moving bus in December 2012.

She was dumped on the streets after 45 minutes with horrific internal injuries, and died 13 days later in a Singapore hospital.

Daniel Cormier brutally knocks out Stipe Miocic to become double UFC champion
The pair shook hands and raised their fists for the cameras, with Miocic standing a few inches taller than his veteran opponent. But when they stepped on the scales Friday morning, Cormier (246 pounds) actually outweighed Miocic (242 1/2).

India is one of the countries that still permits capital punishment, typically hanging those sentenced to death.

The four convicts-gym instructor Vinay Sharma (23), bus cleaner Akshay Kumar Thakur (31), fruit-seller Pawan Gupta (22) and unemployed Mukesh Singh (29)-had then appealed to the Supreme Court.

Former Congress MP and renowned industrialist, Naveen Jindal, said, "Welcome the SC decision dismissing the review petition and upholding death sentence of the rapists".

Noting that there was no evidence to show death penalty acted as a deterrent for sexual violence, the human rights body said the government must allocate adequate resources for the effective implementation of laws, improve conviction rates and ensure certainty of justice in all cases. The juvenile convicted in the case by the Juvenile Justice Board was released from a reform home after serving a three-year term.

Trump 'very close' to decision on Supreme Court pick
Trump is known to have interviewed at least seven candidates for the post, all drawn from the Federalist Society longlist. Other finalists are said to be appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett , Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman .

Devi said she believed that nothing less than the death penalty could curb such crimes.

After the Supreme Court verdict on Monday, the families of accused Pawan Gupta and Mukesh Singh at Ravidas Camp in south Delhi remain in denial. If this petition is also rejected, a mercy plea would be their last option. Led by CJI Misra, a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court heard the arguments of both the sides and reserved their order in May this year. "I think true justice for Nirbhaya will be when such crimes against women stop in the society", she said. "However, I am happy that my daughter has finally got justice", Singh told reporters.

India has long exercised the death penalty as punishment for serious crimes; its last execution was in 2015 of Yakub Memon for his role in the 1993 terrorist bombings in Mumbai. "The appetite for sex, the hunger for violence, the position of the empowered and the attitude of perversity to say the least, are bound to shock the collective conscience which knows not what to do".
