The Supreme Court will hear on December 17 the plea filed by one of the four death-row convicts in the December 16, 2012 gangrape case seeking review of its 2017 judgment awarding him death penalty.

A three-judge bench will hear the plea filed by a convict, whose lawyer has questioned in the review petition the capital punishment at a time life is getting “short” due to rising pollution.

The apex court had on July 9 last year dismissed the review pleas filed by the three other convicts in the case saying no grounds have been made out by them for review of the 2017 verdict.

She succumbed to injuries on December 29 at a hospital in Singapore.
