The court postponed the execution of death warrants since the mercy petition of Pawan Kumar Gupta (one of the 4 convicts) is pending before President Ram Nath Kovind.

"Despite stiff resistance from the victim's side, I am of the opinion that any condemned convict must not meet his Creator with a grievance in his bosom that the courts of the country have not acted fairly in granting him an opportunity to exhaust his legal remedies," the judge said as quoted by News 18.

"As a cumulative effect of the discussion, I am of the opinion that the death sentence cannot be executed pending the disposal of the mercy petition of the convict. It is hereby directed that the execution of death warrants against all the convicts, scheduled for March 3 at 6 am, is deferred till further orders," the Judge added further.

Therefore it is the 3rd time that the death warrants of the 4 convicts have been postponed due to delays in legal remedies.
