New Delhi/IBNS: The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the curative pleas filed by two of the four convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape case, media reports said.

A five-judge bench found no merit in the pleas filed by convicts Mukesh and Vinay Kumar.

All four convicts have been sentenced to death. 

The convicts Akshay Kumar, Pawan Gupta along with Mukesh and Vinay Kumar will be executed at 7 am on Dec 22.

On Dec 16, 2012, Nirbhaya, who was a 23-year female physiotherapy intern, was gang-raped, assaulted and tortured at a private bus in Delhi when she was travelling with her friend.

She was raped by six people including the driver of the bus.

The victim had succumbed to her injuries 13 days after the horrific crime was committed.

The incident had sparked national and international outrage. Both the state and central government were brought under the scanner for not providing adequate protection to women in the national capital.
