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.

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 :
30 ஆண்டுகளுக்கும் மேலான சிறைவாசத்திலிருந்து விடுதலைக் காற்றை முழுமையாகச் சுவாசிக்க உள்ள பேரறிவாளனுக்கு எனது வாழ்த்துகளும் வரவேற்பும்.
ஒரு துளி நியாயமான கண்ணீருக்கு எதையும் வெல்லும் திறன் உண்டு எனத் தாய்மையின் இலக்கணமாக நின்றுள்ளார் அற்புதம் அம்மாள் என்னும் அயராத போராளி! (1/3) pic.twitter.com/VAqzcLZOtw
