Yakub Abdul Razak Memon, the sole death row convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, on Thursday (July 23) moved the Supreme Court seeking stay of execution of his death sentence scheduled for July 30. Memon, in his petition said that all legal remedies have not been exhausted and he has also approached the Maharastra Governor with a plea for mercy. He had filed the mercy plea before the Governor immediately after his curative petition was dismissed by the apex court on Tuesday. A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu had on July 21 rejected Memon’s plea saying that the grounds raised by him does not fall within the principles laid down by the apex court in 2002 in deciding the curative petition, the last judicial remedy available to an aggrieved person.
