One month after the brutal assassination of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, the crack special investigation team (SIT) has managed to edge considerably closer to unravelling the complex plot behind the shocking crime that stunned the nation.


The exhaustive investigation process and interrogation of key suspects picked up so far have established that the plot to kill Rajiv Gandhi was first hatched in October 1990 deep in the jungles of Jaffna. The motive is now understood to have been related to the political tremors then emanating from New Delhi. The then prime minister V.P. Singh was battling for survival following a threat by the BJP to withdraw support to his minority National Front government.

The convicts are V Sriharan alias Murugan, T Suthendraraja alias Santham, A G Perarivalan alias Arivu, Jayakumar, Robert Payas, P Ravichandaran and Nalini.

Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated during an election rally in Sriperumbudur near Chennai on May 21, 1991. The bomb, detonated by a member of the LTTE, also killed 15 others, including nine policemen, and injured more than 40.

When the case reached the Supreme Court, 19 people were acquitted, four of the seven accused were awarded the death sentence and three were given life terms. The death sentences to Murugan, Santham and Perarivalan were commuted to life terms by the SC in 2014. The Tamil Nadu Governor in 2000 had commuted the death sentence of Nalini as well following an appeal by Sonia Gandhi.


Perarivalan, from Jolarpettai in Vellore district, has been in jail for 27 years. He was arrested in connection with the case in June 1991 at the age of 19. He was granted parole for the first time last September. He spent his time in jail studying before handling educational programmes for other prisoners.

Jail has changed the life of Nalini’s husband Murugan, a Sri Lankan citizen, officials say, adding that he is often seen meditating.

Santhan, also Sri Lankan, is now a priest at the Vellore central prison. Ravichandran is from Madurai while Payas and Jayakumar are also Sri Lankan citizens.


Meanwhile actor and upcoming politician Rajinikanth was asked by reporters about the release of the 7 members. To that Rajinikanth said that he did not know anything about any 7 members and he is not aware of that.


This statement from the actor created massive uproar on the Internet all of a sudden that so many media channels started making news out of it playing the video of the star saying it. Watch the video below :
