For the 12 serial bomb blasts that terrorized Mumbai and India 22 years ago, killing 257 and injuring 713, Yakub Memon, the lone condemned accused and younger brother of absconding mastermind Tiger Memon, will hang.
The execution will take place at 7am on July 30, which happens to be Yakub’s 54th birthday.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday closed the last possible window for relief by dismissing Yakub’s curative petition, which had sought reconsideration of the death sentence and imposition of life imprisonment. The President had rejected Yakub’s mercy petition in May last year.
