Rajiv killer says reopen case, SC to study plea

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to examine the plea for re-opening of the entire case against A G Perarivalan, who is undergoing a life sentence for supplying two batteries used in the bomb which killed former PM Rajiv Gandhi in 1991.

A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R Banumathi said the CBI‘s Multi Disciplinary Monitoring Agency (MDMA), which is probing the larger conspiracy behind the assassination, was not making “much headway” and could be “endless” and, under such circumstances, there could be two options for the convict — either to wait for the Mdma inquiry or reopen the case against him.

“You have two choices. One is to seek an early conclusion to the MDMA enquiry and two, re-open the entire case against you,” the bench told Perarivalan’s counsel Gopal Sankaranarayanan. Perarivalan, in his mid-forties, has been in solitary confinement for 23 years and was recently granted parole for the first time.
