Yakub Memon was hanged at Nagpur Central Prison at 6:43 am on Thursday for his role in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. Terming the execution of Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon as "miscarriage of justice", CPI(M) on Thursday demanded stringent action against those responsible for the 1992 riots in the western metropolis, saying these communal incidents were a "causative" factor for the blasts.
