New Delhi: Tiger Memon brother of Yakub Memon who is the main accused in the case should be sent to the gallows tweeted Bollywood actor Salman Khan here on Saturday.
SALMAN_KHANMr Khan, 49, in a series of tweets last night, said: Get tiger hang him. Parade him not his brother. Phasisi k phande pe chardne walla hai . Koi statement. Koi address. Kuch toh bolo k tum teh. Wah bhai ho toh aisa. Matlab. Ya khoob menan. 1 innocent man killed is killing the humanity.

In 2007, Yakub was found guilty of both plotting the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai and executing it. He was held guilty of distributing arms and ammunition, detonators and explosives to other accused and also of funding terror activities. 53-year-old Yakub will hang on the same day as his birthday, July 30. Of the 11 convicts in the case, he is the only one whose mercy petition was rejected.

Yakub has made a fresh mercy plea after his last one was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee in May 2014. He has also filed a fresh appeal in Supreme Court for stay on the execution, which will be heard on Monday.

Yakub, who has spent over two decades in jail, has repeatedly insisted that he was unaware of the conspiracy reportedly hatched by his brother, Tiger, and Dawood Ibrahim, who have been on the run since 1993. Yakub Memon, is the man convicted for the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai that killed 257 people.
