New delhi: The Delhi high court on Monday reserved its verdict in the trial court’s reference for confirmation of capital punishment given to two convicts in the 2009 Jigisha Ghosh murder case.

A bench comprising justices S. Muralidhar and I.S. Mehta after hearing the arguments, reserved its verdict on the appeals of the two death row convicts and another convict, challenging the trial court’s conviction.  

 

While convicts Ravi Kapoor and Amit Shukla were awarded death penalty, the third convict Baljeet Malik was given a reprieve from gallows for his good conduct in jail and awarded life imprisonment by the lower court.
