Nirbhaya’s convict, Vinay Sharma, tries again to get hurt inside Tihar’s cell | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: Nirbhaya’s group rape and murder convict, Vinay Sharma, tried to hurt herself by swallowing basic pins inside her cell on Thursday. Prison officials managed to stop him and treated him at the prison hospital thereafter.

On Friday, jail authorities also notified Vinay and Akshay’s relatives of their last meeting with the convicts.

Tihar sources say that Mukesh and Pawan already had their “last meeting” with their families on January 31, before the previous execution date. “We have asked Akshay and Vinay to indicate their date of the last meeting. Apart from this, the regular mulaqat twice a week continues for all of them, ”said a senior prison official.

According to prison officials, Vinay’s behavior had become violent since the execution date was announced.

The prison authorities told TOI that from the moment Vinay has been in prison, her mental and health status has remained stable.

“Convicts are guarded 24 hours a day and officials also monitor CCTV cameras,” an official said.

Jail sources said the four consume food, albeit in small quantities. There has been a dramatic change in Vinay’s behavior since the court gave the new execution date.

During the last meeting, three or more family members have the opportunity to meet with the convict and embrace them.
