Judge who rejected Yakub Memon's mercy plea gets threat letter

Judge who rejected Yakub Memons mercy plea gets threat letter

New Delhi: One of the three judges who refused to stop the hanging of 1993 blasts convict Yakub Memon has received a death threat.

The Delhi Police has registered a case and are investigating an anonymous letter sent to Justice Dipak Misra.

The letter says Justice Misra will be targeted even if his security is increased, TV channels reported.

Soon after Yakub Memon was hanged in the early hours of July 30, security for justice Misra and his two colleagues-Amitav Roy and Prafulla Pant was increased. The three-member Supreme Court bench had rejected Memon's last-minute appeal to stop his hanging, in an unprecedented hearing that took place in the Supreme Court in the middle of the night.

Yakub -- brother of prime accused Tiger Memon -- and 11 others were sentenced to death by a special TADA court in July 2007 for the dozen explosions that ripped through India's financial capital, killing 257 people and leaving more than 1,000 injured.

The only well-educated member of the Memon family was found guilty of criminal conspiracy, arranging money for buying vehicles used by the bombers and organising air tickets to Dubai for some of them.
