New Delhi/UNI: Four days before the scheduled hanging, Pawan Gupta, the fourth convict in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape-murder case, on Friday approached the Supreme Court with a curative petition.

Lawyer A P Singh contended that the repeated rejection of Gupta's juvenility plea is an "error apparent on the face of the record" & amounted to "gross miscarriage of justice.'

As per sources in the Supreme Court registry and officials, the matter may be listed for an hearing on Monday or Tuesday.

"I have filed the curative petition before Apex Court today and seek commutation of death sentence to life sentence," Gupta's counsel, A P Singh, said.

Gupta, the only convict out of the four, who had not filed curative or mercy plea curative petition, before the Apex Court, pleaded for a stay on the March 3 execution.

He is scheduled to be hanged at 0600 hrs on March 3 along with Mukesh Kumar, Akshay Singh and Vinay Sharma.
