New Delhi: Ninety minutes before 1993 Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon was hanged, his brother Tiger Memon, the prime accused in the case, reportedly rang up the family on the landline and talked of revenge.
In a related development, a death threat was made against Justice Dipak Misra, one of the three Supreme Court judges who turned down the final plea of Yakub Memon.
The Delhi police has registered a case at Tuglaq Road police station in connection with the matter. Ruling out a prank, the police said the threat to Justice Misra seems to be of “a grave nature” and added that those who kept the letter may have reconnoitered his residence as they knew the positions of the security personnel posted around his house and the locations of the CCTV cameras.
On Tiger Memon telephoning his family, reports said, the landline number on which he called was being monitored by the Mumbai police. “This is the height of injustice, this will not go in vain,” he is believed to have said, referring to his younger brother’s execution, as per reports, and his mother Hanifa Memon replied:
“Enough is enough. Because of the first one I lost my Yakub. I don’t want to see any more.” Yakub Memon was convicted in 2007 for being the “driving spirit” of the deadly attack in Mumbai in 1993 in which 257 people were killed....
