The Death sentence has been awarded to Yakub Memon by the Supreme court here in Delhi today.

Yakub was the person who involved in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast conspiracy with Dawood Ibrahim and other absconders in the conspiracy and blamed Pakistan for involvement.

A bench comprising Justices P Sathasivam and B S Chauhan noted that the conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan in violation of all International norms.

It dismissed the contention of the convicts that the TADA court, Mumbai did not follow fair and correct procedure during the trial.

As many as 257 people were killed and 700 others injured in a series of bomb blasts that rocked Mumbai on March 12, 1993.

The Court commuted the death sentence of 10 convicts to life imprisonment and upheld the life imprisonment awarded to 17 others
