New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) has urged President Ram Nath Kovind to reject the mercy petition of the accused in the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case.

As per reports, the women panel said rejecting the mercy petition would deter others from committing such crimes against young girls and women.

Considering the rising incidents of “inhuman” tragedies against young girls and women, an exemplary punishment of death sentence should be given to the convicts of such heinous crimes as they do not deserve any mercy, said NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma.
