In her letter, she writes that the hanging of all four of the convicts should be done by her as that will send a message cross the country that a woman can also conduct execution.
Six men, including a juvenile, were convicted of raping 23-year-old Nirbhaya seven years back. While the juvenile, also believed to be the most brutal, was let go after he serving time in juvenile home, one of the convicts had committed suicide while in prison. The remaining four are to be executed shortly. Preparations are on in Tihar jail for their execution.
After it was known that the Tihar jail does not have a hangman to carry out the execution of the four convicted rapists, many people have come forward and shown willingness to carry out the task. One Ravi Kumar from Himachal Pradesh had written to President Kovind to appoint him to hang the four convicts.
