Supreme Court Put Hold On Man Who Raped, Killed 3-Year-Old In Gujarat
New Delhi: The hanging of a man who allegedly raped and murdered a three-year-old in Gujarat's Surat was put on hold today by the Supreme Court, nearly a week before his execution.
The convict Anil Surendra Yadav on February 29. He was sentenced to death for rape and murder of a three-year-old girl in Surat in October 2018.
The hanging was put on hold after Anil Surendra Yadav moved the top court and his lawyer argued that death warrant can't be issued before all legal remedies are exhausted.
Yadav has 60 days to file his appeal in the top court and a death warrant can't be issued before that, his lawyer Aparajitha Singh.
After hearing the lawyer, Chief Justice SA Bobe said, "In spite of Supreme Court judgment, which had said that death warrant can't be issued before all legal remedies are exhausted, how can a judge pass such orders? The judicial process can't be (ignored) like this."
