Before Yakub's hanging Tiger Memon called family, talked about revenge : media reports

One of the most wanted in India and mastermind of the 1933 Mumbai blasts Mushtaq Tiger Memon, rang up his family before his brother Yakub Memon's hanging, reports Economic Times.

However, the report suggests that he didn't grieve his brother's death. Instead he talked about revenge.

Tiger who fled India twenty years ago called the Memon family landline just one-and-a half hour before his brother was to be hanged. Mumbai Police officials who intercepted the conversation have identified Tiger's voice. They fear a "retaliatory terror attack".

ET that has accessed the transcripts of the conversation reported that the fact that the call was tapped was confirmed by officials from security agencies in Mumbai and Delhi.

However, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) KP Bakshi told the newspaper that he was not aware of the phone conversation between Tiger and his family. "Neither the Maharashtra DGP (director general of police) nor the central agencies have given us any such report," the paper quoted him as saying.

Yakub Memon was convicted in 2007 for providing logistical and financial assistance to execute the deadly attack of Mumbai in 1993 in which 257 people were killed. He was hanged to death on 30 July after a last ditch attempt by his lawyers to stop his execution.
