Anti-, pro-hanging activists stage sit-in at Delhi court

New Delhi, Feb 13 As the battle over hanging of four Nirbhaya case convicts continued in a court, two groups seeking expeditious execution and demanding abolition of capital punishment, staged sit-in in support of their respective causes outside the courtroom here on Thursday.

Led by Yogita Bhayana, those for the early execution of death penalty held placards with 'hang the rapists' and 'we demand death penalty' written on them.

Those opposed to the capital punishment carried banners that read: 'The country will not bear the death of five people because of one death. Abolish capital punishment'.

The sessions court adjourned the petition for issuance of fresh death warrants against the four convicts in the 2012 case to February 17.
