Delhi’s Tihar Jail might soon witness the most awaited execution of four culprits in the Nirbhaya ganr rape-murder case by executioner Pawan.

Executions have always been treated by the Indian judiciary as the punishment for the rarest of rare crimes, which is evident from the fact that the last execution that was held in Agra District Jail had taken place in 1992.

SS Chauhan, who was serving with the Indian Prison Service at that time said that the inmate who was executed on February 4, 1992 in the Agra District Jail was called Jumman and was a resident of Firozabad, Uttar Pradesh.

Recalling that night, Chauhan said that all through the night, Jumman listened to religious scriptures arranged by the jail administration as it was feared that Jumman may die from panic, awaiting his execution.

At 4 am, Jumman was hanged till death.

Jumman was also convicted of raping an eight-year-old girl and then murdering her on June 22, 1983. He had picked her up from her home where she was playing and took her to his home where he raped and then strangled her to death.

Jumman had been arrested the next day by Aligarh police and the trial was conducted in Agra.

Once his death warrant was issued, Jumman had been kept separate from other inmates and was given regular counseling by the jail staff.

Chauhan said that in the barrack, Jumman used to cry all night and bang his head against the walls, so he was placed under 24 hours guard from January 10, 1992.

Jumman’s executioner Kalu, who was the grandfather of the current executioner Pawan, was called from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh to rehearse the execution in the morning.

Pawan had accompanied his grandfather at that time and now, he will be conducting the execution of four Nirbhaya rape convicts, carrying on the legacy of his grandfather.
