A bench headed by justice L Nageshwara Rao invoked it’s extraordinary power under Article 142 to grant relief for Perarivalan. “State cabinet had taken it’s decision based on relevant considerations. In exercise of Article 142, it’s appropriate to release the convict” the bench said. Rajiv Gandhi had already spent more than 30 years in jail.

In it’s May 1999 order, the top court had upheld the death sentence of four convicts namely Perarivalan, Murugan, Santhanam and Nalini in the assassination case.

Perarivalan who was just 19 while getting arrested, was accused of buying two 9 vilt batteries for Sivarasan, the Liberation tigers of Tamil Eelam man who master minded the assassination. The batteries were used in the bomb to assassinate Rahul Gandhi. “Truth and justice were on our side. This wouldn’t have happened without the support and love of the people.I firmly believe there is no need for capital punishment.” Perarivalan said after the verdict.

Tamilnadu Chief minister MK Stalin welcomed the judgement saying that it could find a place in the “Justice-Law-Political-Administrative History”. Here’s the note he released post the release of Perarivalan :

After it was announced that Perarivalan is going to walk free after 31 years of imprisonment, along with public, many celebrities from Tamil cinema reacted to the verdict of Perarivalan’s release.

Director Karthik Subbaraj said that he was waiting for so many years to witness the smile in the face of Perarivalan’s mother Arputhammal whereas actor Kamal Haasan said that it is a victory to justice and Arputhammal. Meanwhile, actress Kasthuri questioned the relationship between DMK and their alliance Congress after the release of Perarivalan.

“The current TN govt can certainly claim #PerarivalanRelease as their victory. Will this impact DMK INC ties ? I don’t think that the congress ‘ opinion matters any more. DMK knows it , and INC knows it too. They have to swallow their pride & pain and go on as usual” read her tweet.
