Mumbai Blast Convict Yakub Menon Likely To Be Hanged Tomorrow

Published on 29 July, 2015 at 5:23 pm By

Announcing  its verdict on Wednesday, the Supreme Court dismissed Yakub Memon’s petition against his death warrant. He is likely be executed on July 30, his 53rd birthday, in Nagpur jail.

The court said that there was no procedural lapse in the court’s order on the curative petition. The mercy plea with the President now remains the last hope for Memon.

Earlier on Wednesday, Maharashtra governor Vidyasagar Rao had rejected Yakub Memon’s mercy petition.

 

Yakub Menon’s plea had been referred to a larger bench as Justice AR Dave and Justice Kurian Joseph differed on various aspects of the case.



In his plea, he claimed that he has been suffering from schizophrenia since 1996 and has remained behind bars for nearly 20 years. He had sought commutation of the death penalty, contending that a convict cannot be awarded a life term and the death sentence for the same offence.

 

Memon is the lone convict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, which had left 257 dead and over 700 injured.
