The Central government today told the Supreme Court that releasing Rajiv Gandhi’s assassins would set a wrong example. President Ram Nath Kovind rejected Tamil Nadus proposal of releasing the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination in 1991. The Central government said that remission of the sentence of the convicts would set a ?dangerous precedent? and have ?international ramifications.

The Centre on Friday told the Supreme Court that the convicts can’t be set free. The Centre even said that it doesn’t agree with the Tamil Nadu government’s proposal to release the convicts.

The Centre, as per TOI, in its report stated, Releasing of killers of former PM will set a very dangerous precedent. The case has been decided by various forum of judiciary and executive and the prisoners do not deserve to be set free,” said the Centre in its report.

The report further stated, The Centre, in pursuance of section 435 of Criminal Procedure Code does not concur to the proposal of Tamil Nadu government for grant of further remission of sentence to seven convicts. Assassination of Rajiv Gandhi was the most heinous and gruesome crime, the brutal act brought the Indian democratic process to a grinding halt in as much as the general election to the Lok Sabha and the convicts do not deserve any leniency.

Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in May 1991 in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu by a woman suicide bomber named Dhanu. Fourteen others, including Dhanu were killed in the brutal assassination. Other convicted are V Sriharan alias Murugan, T Suthendraraja alias Santham, A G Perarivalan alias Arivu, Jayakumar, Robert Payas, P Ravichandaran and Nalini, who have been in jail for 25 years.

The MLC member was present in the house during the proceedings of the legislative council. While the house was in session, Rathod was watching adult content on his smartphone.
However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
This was not the first time in Karnataka that such an incident had happened. Back in 2012, three Bharatiya Janata Party ministers were caught on camera allegedly watching adult content in the State Assembly.
