Yakub Memon SC update

Yakub Memon was given a free and fair trial, all the witnesses were heard by the Supreme Court. He should have been hanged by now but there still lies a debate even today on his execution. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, many people believe that he came to India and helped the government gather a lot of information on Tiger Memon. He thought that he would turn an approver in the case and would be let free after the trial. Secondly, Yakub only provided financial assistance for the blasts which is not a crime to be hanged for. Now these arguments are in front of the apex court. The date of the execution has been finalised. The controversy is so big that even the two judges of the Supreme Court handling the case have different opinions.
