The Supreme Court, which has referred the death penalty of Yakub Memon to a larger bench due to the difference of opinion of two judges, will be relooking the mercy plea of the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict today.

Chief Justice H.L. Dattu will constitute a larger bench.

The apex court had sought a clarification from Attorney General on rules for curative petition as Yakub Memon says death warrant was issued before the Supreme Court’s decision on his petition.

The apex court had said that it cannot go on merits of Yakub Memon’s case, and added that nothing further is required as everything has been decided.

Yakub Memon had sought a stay of his death sentence after the apex court had on July 21 rejected his mercy petition.

Yakub Memon moved the apex court contending that the death warrant for his execution was issued before he could exhaust the legal remedies available to him. He also sought that his death sentence be stayed by the apex court.
