Yakub Memon, Mumbai blasts convict, will be hanged shortly with the Supreme Court (SC) dismissing his last-minute attempt to escape the gallows by rejecting his plea for a stay on the death warrant. “Stay of death warrant would be a travesty of justice. The plea is dismissed,” said Justice Dipak Misra, heading a three-judge bench, in an order in Court Room 4 which was opened for an unprecedented 90-minute hearing that started at 3.20 AM and ended a little before dawn. The court’s decision brings the curtain down on the last-ditch attempts by Memon’s lawyers to stop the execution scheduled at 7 AM at Nagpur Central Jail. The denouement came after fast-paced developments the whole of Wednesday when the Supreme Court had upheld the death warrant and President Pranab Mukherjee and Maharashtra Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao rejecting Memon’s mercy petition.
