1993 Mumbai Serial Blast: Accused Yakub Memon Likely To Be Hanged On July 30

Yakub Memon, one of the prime accused in March 12, 1993 Mumbai blasts, will be hanged on July 30 for his role in the terror attack, reports Times of India.

According to sources, he will be hanged in Nagpur Central Jail, where he is currently lodged, following the recent rejection of his mercy petition by President Pranab Mukherjee.

Memon – the brother of one of the main absconding accused Tiger Memon – appealed against the sentence in the Bombay High Court, Supreme Court and, later, filed a mercy petition with the President.


Memon, 53, was awarded the death sentence by a Special TADA Court in Mumbai in 2007 for his role in arranging finances for the carrying out of the 13 serial blasts which left 257 dead and over 700 injured across the city.
