The Matunga police yesterday broke up a gathering of demonstrators outside Dadar railway station, rallying against 1993 blasts convict Yakub Memon’s death sentence. The cops arrested 28 persons in connection with the protest and put a bandobast in place at the spot by 5 pm.
The protestors were members of the Committee for Protection of Democratic Rights (CPDR), including a few eminent journalists, lawyers and activists. Protestors were not just against a death sentence for 1993 blasts convict Yakub Memon, but were against capital punishment altogether.


“All the protestors were detained and held at the Matunga police station for nearly two hours, after which they were released on personal bonds. They were arrested (for unlawful assembly) under Section 143 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 37 (5) of the Bombay Police Act,” said a police officer, adding that 14 males and 14 females had been detained.
