Yakub Memon hanged a day before his daughter turns 21

1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon was hanged in Nagpur Central Jail early on Thursday, hours after he exhausted all options available to him legally or otherwise for mercy.



New Delhi: 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon was hanged in Nagpur Central Jail early on Thursday, hours after he exhausted all options available to him legally or otherwise for mercy.

Yakub was executed on a day when he would have celebrated his 54th birthday.

Yakub's last wish was to speak to his daughter Zubeida ahead of his hanging.

That wish was fulfilled by jail authorities who made Yakub speak to his daughter over phone.

However, Yakub would regret not celebrating his daughter's 22nd birthday which falls tomorrow, exactly a day after his birthday.
