Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Punishment in case of mentally ill convicts is non ethical.

If crime is done when he/she mentally ill there should not be the punishment to the convicts in this case as matter of fact for betterment of society should be kept him under observation to avoid the same crime from convicts.
