New Delhi: The Bombay High Court on Thursday rejected the furlough plea of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts terror convict Rubina Memon.
Responding to the judgment by the High Court, a bench of Justice VK Tahilramani and A M Badar said, “We are not inclined to release the petitioner (Rubina) on furlough as she had been convicted by a TADA court for her involvement in terrorist activities.”
Rubina is also sister-in-law of Tiger Memon, who is also one of the conspirators of 1993 Mumbai blasts.
Earlier, The Mumbai TADA court in 2006 had sentenced life imprisonment to Rubina along with three other of their family members.
However, Rubina’s husband Sulieman was acquitted due to lack of evidence. Her brother-in-law Yakub was given death sentence on terror charges.
Series of bombings in 12th March, 1993, resulted in the deaths of more than 200 people across Mumbai. Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was named as the key conspirator behind the attack.
