1993 Mumbai serial bomber Yakub Memon to be executed

Multiple Bombs Rock Mumbai in Apparent Terrorist Attack

Similarly to the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that left 167 dead, we must also remember the 1993 Mumbai serial bombing — the most deadly bomb explosions in India's history.

The 1993 bombings were a series of 13 bomb explosions that took place in Mumbai, India on March 12, 1993. The single-day attacks resulted in over 250 fatalities.

The 13 explosions were ordered by Indian crime lord, Dawood Ibrahim. Ibrahim is "India's most wanted man," and is currently in-hiding.

At the forefront of the execution of Ibrahim's terror plot was Yakub Memon. The 53-year-old was found guilty of conspiracy in 2007.

He is likely to be hanged on July 30, the first execution related to the Mumbai blasts.​
