Curative Petition: Nirbhaya Case convicts file Curative pleas in Supreme Court

Part of: GS Prelims- Judiciary and GS Mains –II- Indian Polity

In News

  • A curative petition, which follows the dismissal of a review petition, is the last legal avenue open for convicts in the Supreme Court.
  • Came into Existence: It is a rare remedy devised by a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in its judgment in the Rupa Ashok Hurra case in 2002. 
  • Grounds of Filing Curative Petition: A party can take only two limited grounds in a curative petition — 
    • One-that he was not heard by the court before the adverse judgment was passed, and 
    • Two- the judge was biased.
