Yakub Memon files fresh mercy petition

News4u-News Desk- Hours after the Supreme Court dismissed a curative petition by Yakub Memon on Tuesday, the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts convict filed a mercy plea before Maharashtra Governor Chenna-maneni Vidyasagar Rao.

This is his last-ditch bid to prevent execution of his death sentence on the 30th of July.

Memon, the only convict on death row in the case, handed over his mercy petition to Nagpur Central Jail authorities where he’s currently lodged.

The Apex Court had earlier on Tuesday rejected Memon’s curative petition, saying the grounds raised by him do not fall within the principles laid down by the apex court in 2002.
