Ibrahim Mushtaq Abdul Razak Nadim Memon (born November 24, 1960), better known by the nickname Tiger Memon, is one of the terrorists in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case. He is wanted by Interpol and the CBI. He is a member of D-Company and is a gang member of its leader, Dawood Ibrahim. He got the dubious nickname 'Tiger' after helping a petty drugs and weapons smuggler to evade the grips of the crime Branch of Mumbai Police by driving his car recklessly over 100 km/h on one way roads.
1993 Bombay bombings
Memon's role, the prime accused in the blasts, had been confirmed by the Special Court after the conviction of the others accused in the case.
On September 15, 2014 the special TADA court, hearing the long-drawn out case around the 1993 Bombay bombings, convicted four members of the Memon family: Yakub, Essa, Rubina and Yusuf. Three other members of the Memon family — Suleiman, Hanifa and Rahil — have been acquitted with the judge giving them the benefit of the doubt. The four Memons have been held guilty on charges of conspiring and abetting acts of terror. They face jail terms ranging from a minimum of five years to life imprisonment. Yakub Memon, the younger brother of prime accused 'Tiger' Memon, had been charged for possession of unauthorised arms and was executed by hanging on 30 July 2015 at 06:35 IST in Nagpur jail.
