Yakub Memon, the only convict in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case who was hanged to death on Thursday morning, did not make a will.
His local lawyer, Anil Gedam, who met Yakub on Tuesday, confirmed this.
“It is not legally necessary for the will to be executed in a court of law in the presence of a judge; a lawyer can do it. However, Yakub didn’t even do it through a lawyer,” he said.
Yakub's wife, daughter and other family members will inherit his asserts as per law.
Gedam, who met Yakub several times, said he was hardly interested ‘in materialistic things’. He said a calm and polite Yakub had been restless for the past few days.
Yakub -- brother of prime accused Tiger Memon in the serial blasts case -- and 11 others were sentenced to death by a special TADA court in July 2007 for the dozen explosions that ripped through India's financial capital, killing 257 people and leaving more than 1,000 injured.
