Supreme Court not happy with the delay in providing justice to the former prime minister: Rajiv Gandhi Assassination
3rd November, 2020
The Supreme Court has asked the Tamil Nadu government to take decisions and provide the punishment to AG Perarivalan, who is one of the accused in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination, as the case is been pending before the governor for the past two years. The governor is bounded with the decision of the Tamil Nadu government and the government is saying that it is waiting for the other higher authorities as the case is being looked upon “larger conspiracy”.
Various dignitaries have asked for a decision on the case as now it has been internationalized while looking in “larger conspiracy” matter, the Supreme Court even said that it could provide for a body of judiciary to help to solve the matter.
As it is said “justice delayed, is justice denied” the state government now should come to the decision and do the needful but in September 2018, Perarivalan was released along with the six convicts on the order of the state government and the case is still pending before the governor.
