Four people will be hanged for the first time
A prison official, on the condition of not disclosing his name, has said that the hanging cell inside the jail is the place to hang only two people simultaneously. The hanging cell is the place where the convict is hanged. This is the first time in the history of the jail that four people will be hanged together. Now renovation work is going on at the hanging place. As part of preparations to complete the hanging of the four convicts on behalf of the jail officer, some changes have been made at the place of hanging. A mock test was also conducted by the authorities on Sunday. Sand bags were hung with the help of new ropes. These ropes were purchased last month.
Noted convicts weight
Earlier, the weight of the four convicts was noted by the jail administration and then sandbags were prepared according to their weight. The ropes have been prepared by inmates of Bihar's Baksar Jail. A death warrant has been issued for the execution of the four convicts of Nirbhaya, Mukesh Singh, Pawan Kumar Gupta, Akshay Thakur and Vinay Sharma on behalf of the City Court. All four convicts will be hanged inside jail number three. There is a hanging cell at this place. The four convicts are housed inside two separate jails inside Tihar Jail. It is believed that he will be shifted to jail number three where he will be hanged. The convicts are currently in prison numbers two and four.
Shift will be done after the decision of the Supreme Court
It has been told by a jail officer that after the Supreme Court's decision on January 14, a decision will be taken to shift the convicts to jail. The Supreme Court has to hear a curative petition filed on behalf of the two convicts, after which they can be shifted to jail number three. After the Supreme Court order, the culprits will be given a chance to meet their family for the last time. All four are currently housed in high risk cells and CCTV cameras are monitoring them. Three prison guards are watching them 24 hours. Another prison official has told that the four have been told what the procedure is and also said that the jail administration will help them in introducing them to the family. Now all four get a chance to meet their family members twice a week.
Soon Pawan Kumar will come from Meerut
He will be able to meet his family for the last time after the decision of the Supreme Court. It has been told from the official that the behavior of the four is normal and has not done anything that seems unusual. If the officer is to be believed, the culprits are confident that their execution can be stopped. At the same time, if another officer is believed, then the Uttar Pradesh jail administration has confirmed that Pawan Kumar will be sent to the gallows soon. A few days before the execution, Pawan Kumar will come to jail and take stock of the preparations. It was requested on behalf of Tihar Jail that two executioners be sent so that the preparations could improve. But this could not happen because another executioner is not present. In such a situation, Pawan Kumar of Meerut will hang all four.
