During the hearing of his appeal, Mohan had moved the high court claiming he was a minor at the time of commission of the crime and his conviction was illegal.
On Mohan's plea, the high court had asked the trial judge, who had awarded the death penalty, to conduct an enquiry and ascertain his age.
The judge had filed the report after recording the statements of Mohan's family members as he had no age proof and filed a report declaring him a juvenile.
The bench again on August 4, 2012 constituted a medical board which conducted dental examination and submitted a report concurring with the trial judge's opinion.
