Nagpur: Yakub Memon, 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict, was hanged to death in Nagpur jail on Thursday morning. It was reported that Yakub woke up at 3.30 am on Thursday, was permitted a warm bath. He offered namaz and read the Holy Quran at the Nagpur central jail before his scheduled hanging. He was provided a set of fresh clothes and offered a breakfast of his choice. Memon was sent to the gallows — on his 54th birthday on Thursday — after several of his court appeals and clemency petitions were rejected by various court.
Before getting hanged Memon said that people were doing politics in connection to his hanging. The jail authorities had also said that he was scared before being taken to the gallows.
