The first execution of 1993 Mumbai blast was carried out today when Yakub Memon was hanged in Nagpur jail early morning today. This might become the only death sentence as other major players of the conspiracy, like Tiger Memon and Dawood Ibrahim, are still at large.

On March 12 1993, a series of blasts were carried out across the city of Mumbai (then Bombay), killing 257 and injuring over thousand. The incident not only shook the financial capital but whole country sending a wave of fear and grief.
