Must Read

The Supreme Court ordered the freedom of AG Perarivalan, a convicted assassin in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, on Wednesday. He was sentenced to over 30 years in prison for assassinating the former Prime Minister. Invoking Article 142 of the Constitution, the court ordered the release. According to a court led by Justice L Nageswara Rao, “The state government made its decision after considering all relevant factors. It is appropriate to discharge the offender under Article 142 “stated the bench.

His compassion petition was constantly shuttled between the Governor and the President, according to the bench.

AG Perarivalan was granted bail by the Supreme Court in March, noting his long detention and excellent behavior while on parole. The court was considering the 47-year-old convict’s petition for his life sentence to be suspended.

On May 21, 1991, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu, by a suicide bomber.

On June 11, 1991, the CBI detained AG Perarivalan, a resident of Jolarpet, Tamil Nadu. He had been accused of providing a 9-volt battery for the bomb that assassinated Rajiv Gandhi. He was later found guilty of plotting to kill the former Prime Minister.

The death sentences of four prisoners  AG Perarivalan, Murugan, Santham, and Nalini were maintained by the Supreme Court in May 1999. The court commuted their execution sentences to life imprisonment on February 18, 2004, citing a delay in ruling on their mercy appeals.

When he was detained, the defendant had completed his Diploma in Electronics and Communication Engineering. He successfully earned his MCA degrees through open school while incarcerated.
