SC issues notice to Centre, TN govt in Rajiv Gandhi assassination case

New Delhi, Sep 26 (UNI) Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to the Central and Tamil Nadu governments, and sought their replies, on pleas of Nalini Sriharan and P Ravichandran, convicts who are serving life imprisonment in connection with the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, and seeking release from the prison like fellow convict AG Perarivalan.
A bench headed by Justice BR Gavai and also comprising Justice BV Nagarathna sought response from both the governments -- Centre and Tamil Nadu -- on the pleas and posted the matter for further hearing to October 14.
"Notice to Centre and Tamil Nadu governments (they have to file their replies). Liberty granted to serving standing counsel of Tamil Nadu and Union of India (UOI), Additional Solicitor General (ASG) KM Nataraj, since he had appeared earlier in similar matter," the bench said in its order.
Nalini and Ravichandran had approached the Supreme Court on the ground that the Supreme Court in its earlier judgment had ordered and released another co convict, AG Perarivalan from jail. Thereby on grounds of parity, they both -- Nalini and Ravichandran -- be released.
Earlier, both had knocked the Madras High Court seeking the same relief, however, the High Court had refused to entertain the petition. Thereby forcing them to approach the Supreme Court for relief.
