Global Human rights body Amnesty International has criticized the hanging of ‘Nirbhaya Case Convicts’. The 4 convicts namely Akshay, Pawan, Mukesh and Vinay were hanged today morning 5:30 A.M. after a night of drama that saw their advocate moving from high court to supreme court to stay the execution.

The global body said that death is not a solution. “Since August 2015, India had not executed anyone and it is unfortunate that four men were executed today in the name of tackling violence against women. All too often lawmakers in India hold up the death penalty as a symbol of their resolve to tackle crime,” said Avinash Kumar, Executive Director, Amnesty International India.
