The apex court had on 2 June, 2014, stayed the execution of Memon.

Earlier on March 21, 2013, the apex court had upheld the death sentence of Memon.

The court had commuted the death penalty awarded by a special TADA court to 10 others, who had planted RDX explosives-laden vehicles at various places in Mumbai, to life term by distinguishing their roles from that of Memon.
