New Delhi: A Delhi court has admitted a plea filed by the parents of the 2012-gangrape victim, seeking transfer of the case to another judge.

The victim’s parents have sought the court’s direction to the Tihar Jail authorities to expedite the execution of the rape convicts.      

The court will hear the matter on November 25. They moved the application since the earlier two judges hearing the matter got transferred and the matter is getting adjourned continuously, the plea said.

The special fast track court—set up to hear cases of sexual harassment cases exclusively—of the Patiala House court, is currently vacant and no judge has been appointed till now.

The application said that the victim’s parents approached the court since the convicts have exhausted all legal remedies.

In December last year, the parents of Nirbhaya, the 23-year-old paramedic who was gangraped in December 2012, approached the court to fast-track the procedure to hang all the four convicts in the case.
