Nagpur: At least three members of 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts convict Yakub Memon's family had been permitted to attend his hanging, sources said on Thursday.

Yakub Memon was hanged at the Nagpur central jail.

Sources said that three of his family members had been allowed to be present during his hanging.

Yakub Memon, 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict, was woken up at 3.30 a.m. on Thursday, permitted a warm bath and provided a set of fresh clothes -- hours ahead of his scheduled hanging.

Arrangements to offer namaz and read the Holy Quran were made for Memon at the Nagpur central jail.

He was offered a breakfast of his choice and he then underwent a final medical examination prior to hanging.

Full information was provided to him on why he is being hanged by a magistrate.

Available reports from various sources indicate that Memon had reportedly not eaten since Wednesday, but his health - both mental and physical - was within normal parameters, according to two medical check-ups done on him.
