Indian police personnel stand alert at the entrance to Central Jail in Nagpur on July 29, 2015, where 1993 Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon is currently detained. India's top court has rejected a final appeal by Yakub Memon, a key plotter of bomb attacks that killed hundreds in Mumbai in 1993, paving the way for his execution. Media reports said Yakub Memon would hang on July 30 -- more than two decades after the deadliest attacks ever to hit India -- after the Supreme Court rejected his final plea.

Yakub Memon, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, was hanged to death today after his last ditch attempts to get a reprieve failed early this morning in the Supreme Court. Memon was hanged shortly before 7 am at the Central Jail in Nagpur.

Here are some snapshots of the case, including active protests from the camps that were for and against the death penalty.
