The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Wednesday questioned the haste shown by the Maharashtra Government to execute the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Yakub Memon.

“Law has to take its own course. Showing haste in the case is not right. Why they are in hurry and can’t wait for few more days? The legal process not complete yet. It makes us wonder why the Maharashtra Government in a hurry to hang Yakub Memon,” said NCP leader Majid Memon.

Memon is likely to be hanged on July 30, the first execution related to the spate of violence that had hit the city, leading the death of over 250 people.

According to reports, the execution will take place if Memon’s mercy petition is rejected by the Supreme Court, after his appeals against the death sentence were rejected by the apex court and by President Pranab Mukherjee.

Memon is currently lodged at the Nagpur Central Jail, which reportedly has facilities for hanging.

Memon, who is a key conspirator with Dawood Ibrahim in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, is one of ten accused who were awarded the death penalty by a special TADA court.

Memon’s death sentence was earlier upheld by a Supreme Court bench on March 21, 2013.

        250 gruesome murders of innocent people and injuring 750 plus Mumbaikars on a day can not be termed small scale crime. Still those video glimpse of scattered limbs of women and young children all around on roads in w Mumbai move our hearts. Law has taken due course of around 22 years to punish such dreaded terrorists who did not deserve even single day of life on Indian soil. He has been provided all available routes to prove innocence but honourable courts and president of India found him to be fit case to be hanged.

                memon is a NCP man and an advocate for tigers brother,all agents of dawood and tiger skirted by sarad pawar.Awahad has openly supported the lakshar human bomb executed by gujarat police.All these peoples involvement should be investigated given the situation of 1993 etc which mercilessly butchered thousands of indians by the supported terrorists openly supported by NCP and Congress.People who have suffered should openly come together and take the issue to the court and also before the govt so that these clandestine supporters will be booked by the law permanently.

                  Shame on the political party who is asking this type of questions.for them vote bank is more important. The Apex court & the President of India has also rejected his mercy peion. What mercy he deserves...... let the NCP leader answer to the nation.
