SC stays death warrant issued by Guj court in rape and murder of 3 year old


New Delhi, Feb 20: The Supreme Court has stayed a death warrant issued by a Gujarat sessions court. The warrant was stayed as the court had issued the same without waiting for the mandatory 60 day period.

The 60 day waiting period is mandatory as it gives the convict the time to appeal before the Supreme Court. While staying the order, Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde was visibly upset. He asked the Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta, why such black warrants are issued despite the Supreme Court's reported order in 2015 in the Shabnam case.
