Yakub Memon awarded masters in English Lit

Yakub Memon, the lone convict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case whose death sentence has been confirmed by the Supreme Court, has been awarded a master’s degree in English Literature by Indira Gandhi National Open University.

Memon, who is now in Nagpur Central Prison, and his seven fellow prisoners were awarded the degrees at a convocation held here Friday. But Memon could not attend the convocation as police refused him permission. IGNOU Regional Director Dr Shivswaroop said that if permitted, he would personally hand over the certificate to Memon.
