The petitions were filed in the top court to set aside the death sentence awarded to the convicts.

On Monday, the court rejected the review petition of three of the six assailants - Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma, all in their 20s - who had asked the court to consider commuting their death sentence to life imprisonment.

The fourth death row convict, Akshay Kumar Singh (31), did not file a review petition against the apex court's May 5, 2017 judgement.

CNN-News18 (formerly known as CNN-IBN) has been the world's window to India and India's window to the world.

Mentioning that there are no grounds to reconsider the 2017-SC verdict, the Court also stated that reviews can be sought only when there are apparent errors resulting in miscarriage of justice and that the convicts cannot use the review petition to re-argue the case.

Over the next few days, his brother Mukesh Singh, gym instructor Vinay Sharma, fruit seller Pawan Gupta, a helper on the bus Akshay Thakur, and the 17-year-old juvenile, who can not be named, are arrested. The verdict has come after Centre in April had approved an ordinance introducing the death penalty for those convicted for raping girls aged 12 years or younger. Of six accused arrested, one died in jail and another convicted juvenile was released after serving a three-year term as per the Juvenile Justice Act.

The woman died of internal injuries almost two weeks later in a Singapore hospital. However, the convicts still have judicial redressal for a re-examination of the dismissal of their appeals and review pleas by way of a curative petition, which is the last legal remedy left for curing the defects, if any, in a judgment.

Jyoti Singh's parents welcomed the ruling on Monday, with her mother Asha Singh saying it was "very happy news".

Singh, lawyer of two convicts, Pawan and Vinay told ANI he is hopeful that his clients would get justice.

In 2016, there were around 40,000 rapes reported in India - up 60 percent from 2012, according to government data, and more cases go unreported, activists say.

She died of her injuries in hospital.

India is one of the countries that still permits capital punishment, typically hanging those sentenced to death.

The gang rape sparked demonstrations attended by tens of thousands of people in Delhi and across India, which led to harsher sentences for sex crimes, including the death penalty. The remaining four accused were sentenced to death by Additional Sessions Judge.
