The Supreme Court on Friday ordered the release of all the convicts in the assassination case of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. A bench of BR Gavai and Justice BV Nagarathna said that the procedure followed in the release of convict AG Perarivalan on May 18, 2022 will be followed in the case of the remaining convicts.

With this, S Nalini Sriharan, Jayakumar, RP Ravichandran, Robert Pius, Sudendra Raja and Sreedharan, who were serving life imprisonment were freed. All of them were released after serving more than 30 years of imprisonment since 1991.

Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on May 21, 1991, in Tamil Nadu, by a woman suicide bomber of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) group. Seven convicts were sentenced to death for their role in the killing. However, the death sentence of convicts was reduced to a life term in the following years.
