New Delhi, July 7: A three judge bench will hear the Nirbhaya matter on July 11. The three judge bench would comprise Justices Dipak Misra, C Nagappan and Banumathi.
The Bench would hear an appeal filed by the accused who had challenged the death sentences awarded to them.
The High Court took six months time and confirmed the death sentences.
The convicts then moved the Supreme Court on March 15 2014. The matter has witnessed delays since then. On one occasion the supreme court was unhappy with the quality of the defence counsel. It appointed two amicus curiae to assist the court.
Now the matter has been listed on July 11 before a three judge bench. The bench is expected to expedite the hearing in the matter and complete the appeal which was filed over two years back.
