Nagpur: 1993 Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon, who will be hanged in Nagpur jail on July 30, will be hanged by the same man who had executed 26/11 Mumbai terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab in 2012. According to the death warrant issued by the TADA court. He will be hanged at 7:00 am.

The entire process of execution is likely to be completed within two hours. Yakub will wake up two hour before the time of execution i.e 5:00 am. He will be taking a bath following which he will be provided any religious book to read or pray if he wants. Even if Yakub asks for a priest the jail authority will allow him to come in his cell. Yakub will also be served his favourite food if he demands.

As per the Supreme Court guidelines, the dead body will be handed over to his family after post-mortem. The rope to be used for the purpose of execution is being prepared in Nagpur jail.

According to sources, Yakub’s family is likely to take his body to Mumbai for last rites. Huge security arrangements will be in place to avoid any untoward incident after the conduction of the execution.
