The same man

Lata Jain

Yakub’s hanging by the same man who exected Ajmal Kasabs hanging. The entire process of execution will take two hours. He will wake up by 5 a.m and take bath and will be provided his favorite food (if he makes a request). He will be provided religious books if he wishes to read at the last moment. A priest will be facilitated inside the jail if he wants some special prayers.

Once the execution is completed, as per the Supreme Court guidelines, the dead body will be handed over to his family after post-mortem. Yakub’s family will be free to decide the place where they want to perform his last rites provided there is assurance that they are not going to create a public issue. Huge security arrangements will be in place to avoid any untoward incident.

The ropes for hanging are specially made keeping various factors in view. The rope which will be used for execution is prepared in Nagpur jail. There are only two prisons in Maharashtra where executions take place- Yerwada Jail in Pune and Nagpur Central Jail. The same man who executed Ajmal Kasabs hanging will execute Yakubs hanging.
