Rajiv Gandhi Assassination Case: Centre Files Review Petition Against Order To Release Convicts


New Delhi: A week after the Supreme Court ordered the release of six convicts in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, the centre on Thursday urged the court to review its decision.

The Centre filed a review petition in the Supreme Court after the six convicts were released last week. The Centre added that the order was passed without affording it adequate opportunity for hearing despite it being a necessary party to the case.

According to reports, the government has further highlighted the alleged procedural lapse, saying that the convicts seeking remission did not formally implead the Centre as a party which resulted in its non-participation in the case.

Six convicts including Nalini Sriharan were ordered premature release noting the Tamil Nadu government has recommended remission of their sentence.

Nalini, R P Ravichandran, Santhan, Murugan, Robert Payas and Jayakumar walked out of the jail following the Supreme Court order.
