1993 Mumbai blasts: Man accused of helping land RDX arrested after 24 years, sent to 12-day police custody
Arrested for his alleged role in the RDX and arms landing at Gosabara coast in Porbandar for the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Kadir Ahmad was remanded in police custody for 12 days by a Jamnagar court on Sunday
Tahir Merchant, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case last month, did not attend any of the conspiracy meetings, his lawyer argued.
A discharge application filed by Shyam Kishor Garikapatti, one of the accused in the infamous 1990 Ghanshyam Bhatija murder case, has been opposed by the prosecution.
Abu Salem has denied in his statement before the TADA court in Mumbai that he went to the house of Sanjay Dutt and gave him two AK-47 rifles.
NSA Ajit Doval defended death penalty where "larger interest of the nation" is involved and deprecated those who questioned the execution of Yakub Memon.
The family of Yakub Memon received his body after the lone convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts was executed early this morning. The body was brought to Mahim for the final rites. Here are some photos.
Yakub Memon's guilt is clearly established. There's very little doubt that he played a role in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. But, the Indian state's role in Memon's arrest/surrender that is under a cloud.
While we all know Yakub Memon, the 1993 Mumbai blasts convict, there is another man with the same name who has suffered much because of his name.
Perhaps the most notable voices to now join the chorus of opposition to the execution is that of former Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) official, B Raman, who passed away in 2013.
If a government cannot prevent wanton killings, it should not take up cudgels for those indulging in such killings.
Yakub Memon's not the first. Here are the other prominent cases in India in which the convicts were hanged for their crimes.
The only convict sentenced to death for his alleged involvement in the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai, the 53-year-old Yakub Memon in all likelihood would be hanged at 7 am at the Nagpur Central Jail on 30 July.

The claims made by Shakeel has also taken a political colour with the BJP regime blaming the Congress-led UPA government of inaction in trying to get Dawood back into India and put him under trial.
