Mumbai: National security adviser Ajit Doval on Tuesday defended death penalty where “larger interest of the nation” is involved and deprecated those who questioned the execution of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon.

Mr Doval referred to President George W. Bush’s address to the US Congress after the 9/11 attacks to defend exercise of such deterrence. Mr Doval also said, “The fact is that India should take Tiger Memon to the logical judicial consequence. It is not about what is right and what is wrong. Yakub and Tiger are two standalone things.”
