Barely 15 hours ahead of the hanging in the Nirbhaya rape and murder case, high voltage drama ensued outside the Patiala House Court here, as wife of one of the death-row convicts, Akshay Kumar Singh, fainted and later threatened to kill herself. Wife of one of the death-row convicts, #AkshaySingh, broke down in the courtroom as the judge dismissed an application seeking a stay on execution. Please hang me too," Akshay's wife told the court after the pronouncement of order. The four convicts are scheduled to be hanged by the noose for brutally raping and murdering a 23-year-old physiotherapy student on December 16, 2012. She was later dubbed "Nirbhaya" meaning the feraless as she battled for many days and even gave her statement despite thebrutality of her injuries.
