Yakub Memon challeges SC rules on review petition
Monday June 2, 2014 11:58 AM, IANS

The Supreme Court Monday issued notice to the centre on a petition by 1993 Mumbai bomb blast accused Yakub Abdul Razak Memon challenging the apex court's rules guiding its review of a death sentence.

The apex court bench of Justice J.S. Kehar and Justice C. Nagappan also suspended the execution of death sentence of Memon.

Memon's mercy plea was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee last week.

The court, while issuing the notice and suspending execution of the death sentence, tagged Memon's plea with an earlier petition challenging the Supreme Court's rules by which review in a death sentence can be decided by circulation amongst the judges.

The Supreme Court March 21, 2013, upheld the death sentence awarded to Memon by the special TADA court and confirmed by the Bombay High Court.
