Centre opposes Memon’s mercy plea


New Delhi, July 27:

The central government on Monday strongly opposed 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts convict Yakub Memon’s plea challenging the death warrant issued against him and seeking stay of his execution — slated for July 30 — saying that he has exhausted all the legal and administrative remedies.

However, the apex court bench of Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice Kurian Joseph adjourned the hearing as Justice Joseph raised doubts over the composition of the bench that had rejected Memon’s curative petition on July 21. (IANS)
