New Delhi: dismissed a petition by 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts convict Yakub Abdul Razak Memon, whose death sentence will be executed on July 30.An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu rejected Memon's curative petition challenging an earlier verdict to uphold the death sentence.

Yakub Memon was convicted for his role in the March 12, 1993, Mumbai bomb blasts.Official sources earlier said Memon will be hanged on July 30.He is likely to be be hanged in the Nagpur Central Jail, where he is currently lodged, following the rejection of his mercy plea in April this year by the President.

A chartered accountant, Memon, 53, filed his second review petition before the Supreme Court, which dismissed it on Tuesday.He was awarded the death sentence by a Special TADA Court in Mumbai on July 27, 2007, for his role in the blasts, including arranging finances for carrying out the 13 serial explosions which left 257 dead and over 700 injured across the city on March 12, 1993.

Subsequently, Memon - brother of one of the main absconding accused, Ibrahim alias Tiger Memon - appealed against the sentence in the Bombay High Court, the Supreme Court and later filed a mercy petition with the President, followed by a review petition, and then a second review petition.
