HC rejects furlough plea of 1993 blasts convict Rubina Memon

ProMASS: Dec 29, 2016: The Bombay High Court has rejected the plea of 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blast terror convict Rubina Suleman Memon, seeking her release on furlough. A bench of Justice V K Tahilramani and A M Badar in a recent judgment denied to release Rubina Memon as she had been convicted by a TADA court for her involvement in terrorist activities.

Rubina Memon was sentenced to life imprisonment along with three other family members by a Mumbai TADA Court in 2006, while her husband Sulieman was acquitted due to lack of evidence. Her brother-in-law Yakub was sent to the gallows on terror charges. Rubina Memon, currently lodged in Pune’s Yerwada prison moved the High Court by a writ petition seeking furlough leave, which was rejected last week.
