Yakub Memon death sentence: Ram Jethmalani defends impartiality of Indian judiciary
Updated: Jul 24, 2015, 03:15 PM IST
Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani on Friday rubbished AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi's remark about 1993 Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon's death sentence, saying the courts are impartial."That's not correct, our courts are impartial in such matters," said Jethmalani. Owaisi had alleged that Memon is being hanged only because he belongs to a particular religion and added that death sentences of those convicted in former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi's assassination case were commuted to life imprisonment. Yakub, who is to be hanged on July 30, had last week filed a mercy petition to the Governor.
