The convicts can file one more petition challenging their sentence and if that's turned down too, can ask the President for mercy.

Asha Devi, mother of the gang-rape victim, addressing the media at the Supreme Court after the verdict on Monday.

A lawyer for the men, A.P. Singh, told reporters at the courthouse after the verdict that "injustice" had been done to the convicted murderers - using the Hindi word for "boys" to describe them - and the court had caved to public and political pressure to uphold the death penalty. But their "struggle does not end here", she said, referring to the legal steps that remain before the death sentence is carried out.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan dismissed the review petition filed by Mukesh, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma to reduce their death penalty to a life sentence. Justice is getting delayed. 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. "I request judiciary to tighten their judicial system, serve justice to Nirbhaya by hanging them (culprits) as soon as possible and help other girls and women".

The bench said the three convicts were heard elaborately after they had appealed against the Delhi High Court's ruling, and they had not made any case for a review of the top court's verdict upholding their death penalty.

On 16 December 2012, the six convicts raped and brutalised the student in a moving bus she had boarded in South Delhi with a male friend. The accused then beat up the victim's friend before unleashing the vicious episode of violence on her.

The case put the treatment of women in India in the global spotlight and led to heavier sentences for sex crimes.

The sixth defendant, a minor accused of pulling out part of the woman's intestines with his own hand, was sent to a reform home for three years and has since been released.

Singh was dumped on the streets 45 minutes later with horrific internal injuries, and died 13 days later in a Singapore hospital.

Only three of them were involved in the appeal rejected on Monday.
