Yakub Memon Executed: Karnataka students give Rs 10,000 to hangman, here's why


Mangaluru, Aug 6: A group of students of a pre-university college in Puttur, Mangaluru rewarded the hangman who executed 1993 blasts convict Yakub Memon on July 30.

The students of Ambika Padavi Poorva Vidyalaya collected Rs 10,000 and sent the money to the Maharashtra Director General of Police (DGP). The students wanted to honour the hangman as he executed one of the men who had killed 257 people and injured many during the serial bomb blasts on Mar 12, 1993.

Memon was the sole convict who was given capital punishment (death penalty). However, the main conspirator Tiger Memon escaped to Pakistan and is still on run.

Days after Yakub's execution at Nasik jail, the students of the college expressed their wish to donate money to the hangman. Hence, they urged the college authority to help to collect money.

A group of students asked all students of the college to donate for the cause. Even college staffs gave money and the group managed to collect Rs 10,000.

Now, a cheque of Rs 10,000 has already been sent to the Maharashtra DGP on Monday, Aug 3. A small covering letter too was sent along with the cheque.

In the letter, the students wrote, "We would like to express our respect to the officials who played a great role in this. We are so proud to say that we will be greatful to you if you give us an opportunity to uphold our patriotism."
