Execution of 1993 Mumbai Blasts Accused Stayed

New Delhi, Dec 10: The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the execution of Yakub Memon, the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, seeking responses from the Maharashtra Special Task Force and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on his review petition against the death penalty.

A three judge bench stayed the execution of Memon, fixing the next date for the hearing to January 28.

Memon was sentenced to death in 2007. He is the lone death-row convict in the Mumbai serial blasts that had killed 257 people in 1993.
