New Delhi:- The Tihar jail administration is preparing to hang the four convicts of Nirbhaya's imprisonment simultaneously. If this happens, this will be the first time that four people will be hanged together at the same place. According to jail sources, a new technique is being tested to hang the four together. This work is being done through some changes in the gallows. Apart from this, it is also being seen whether it can lift the weight of four people at once.

Sources said that it is necessary that the four convicts be hanged simultaneously. The reason for this is that if a person has problems due to restlessness or becomes ill, then hanging will have to be postponed. So far, two trials have been conducted to determine whether the gallows can carry their weight for three consecutive hours.

The strength of the hanging board is being tested

A whole team of jail officials is involved in this process. Sources in Tihar Jail said that the 'hanging cell' here was built around 1950. It has two concrete poles and one with iron rods. A loop has been prepared on it, which is used for hanging. According to sources, the rods in it have become much weaker as they become very old. A jail official, on the condition of anonymity, said, "We are currently estimating the strength of this rod with the help of experts." Some additional construction can also be done to strengthen it.

Hanging ropes prepared with butter and wax

Meanwhile, there are reports of demanding 8 ropes for hanging. They are brought from Buxar Jail, which has been prepared by the prisoners. Butter and wax are also applied in this rope prepared from soft cotton so that it remains soft and strong. A prison source told, "This rope is prepared in such a way that the throat of the punished person is not cut."

The hanging of the culprits may be postponed for a few more days

However, the punishment of the four convicts may be further delayed for a few days. Actually one of these four convicts Akshay Singh has filed a review petition in the Supreme Court. A hearing is scheduled for December 17. Apart from this, the jail administration is given 14 days' time to convict prisoners to be mentally prepared for hanging. Apart from this, he gets a chance to prepare his will and other things during this time.

Pawan executioner ready to hang

Pawan Jallad of Meerut jail has agreed to hang the four convicts. He said that if it is said on behalf of the UP government, I will go to Delhi and hang them. Pawan Jallad said, 'I think he should be hanged. If the UP government says, then I am ready to hang. I will go to Delhi and do my duty.
