Yakub Memon, Mumbai serial blast convict will be hang on 30 July at Nagpur jail on Yakub’s 54th birthday. It is expected that he will be woken up at 3 A.M and after taking bath and medical check-up he will hang at 4 A.M although all medical check-up is already done but that will be formality which has to be fulfilled for the procedure. Yakub is the only person who is sentenced to death from 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convicts.
Earlier Supreme court rejected the plea of reducing the Yakub’s Punishment from death to life imprisonment. Dealing with the reference, the court said that the curative petition that “was decided by the three senior-most judges cannot be regarded as void or inappropriate” in context of the principle that was laid down by this court in an earlier judgement famously known as Hurra case.”In view of that we conclude that the curative petition decided by the three senior-most judges cannot be faulted,” the bench said, adding that it was not inclined to go into the issue of second mercy petition filed by Memon before the Maharashtra government after the dismissal of his curative petition on July 21.
