A Delhi Court has agreed to hear an application filed by the convicts in the Nirbhaya case for a stay on the execution of their death warrant.

The application is filed in light of one of the convicts, Pawan, having filed his curative petition before the Supreme Court and a "complete" mercy plea filed by Akshay before the President of India.
