The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday (July 21) rejected the curative petition of Yakub Memon, the lone death row convict in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case. With this all hurdles in way of Memon’s execution has been cleared. The curative plea was his last legal option to fight for life. Memon is lodged in a solitary cell in the high security Nagpur central jail. A special Tada judge had earlier fixed July 30 as his execution date after the SC dismissed his review petition against his mercy plea’s rejection earlier that month. In 2013, Supreme Court upheld Memon’s 2006 conviction by special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (Tada) Judge P D Kode in Mumbai. The apex court observed that Yakub, a chartered accountantand the most articulate and literate among all convictsplayed a “key” role in the blasts.
