Stern action will be taken in Yakub Memon grave beautification: Eknath Shinde

Updated: September 9, 2022 4:16 pm

Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde responded to the controversy over the beautification of the grave of 1993 Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon, who was hanged in 2015. Nearly two months after the state saw the formation of the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government, Maharashtra is yet again witnessing the NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress alliance pitted against the ruling combine. He reacted. “An inquiry has been ordered. The probe has also been started,” Shinde was quoted as saying by a news agency. “Strict action will be taken against the persons responsible,” he added. Reports said that the grave was beautified with granite construction and lit up with LED lights. Amid the row, however, the Mumbai Police intervened and removed the lights while an initial investigation found that Yakub Memon’s family was carrying out the process for the graves of 14 members.
