Pawan has yet not availed the remedy of either curative or mercy petition. He, along with three others are scheduled to be hanged on March 3 at 6 a.m.

Pawan's counsel told media persons that since he has not been able to establish contact with Pawan in the last few days, no legal remedy could be moved on his behalf.

The case pertains to the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old girl in the national capital in December 2012.
