Justice Dipak Misra, who rejected Yakub Memon’s mercy plea, gets threat letter

New Delhi,  (PTI): Justice Misra, who led the three-judge bench that rejected the last- minute appeal of Yakub Memon in an unprecedented midnight hearing, has received an anonymous threat letter.


According to a NDTV report, the letter addressed to Misra states, “irrespective of the protection you may avail, we will eliminate you.”

The Delhi Police has registered a case and are investigating upon the source of the anonymous letter received by Justice Misra.

Soon after the execution of Yakub Memon, security for all the three judges namely, Misra, Amitav Roy and Prafulla Pant was beefed up following a threat perception.

After the midnight hearing of Memon’s plea, it is Misra who had announced the court’s decision to reject it saying, “Stay of death warrant would be a travesty of justice”.

Justice Dipak Misra, 61, has been the Chief Justice at the Patna and Delhi High Courts. He has served for 7 years at the Supreme Court and he is in line to become the Chief Justice in 2017.
