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.

Sharman Joshi

Sharman Joshi came to fame with romantic-comedy ‘Style’ (2001), his first hit. But, he was already a known face by then with few films to his credit. However, the actor was still trying to set his foot in the industry and had his share of struggle too. In a recent interview, the actor remembered his struggling days.

The ‘3 Idiots’ actor used to call the director for work in those days. “There was a director, who used to have telephone numbers of many directors from Bollywood. I took the list from him and would call them on their landline as those were ‘no mobile’ phone days. One thing that helped me big time was my background in theatre,” shared Sharman. 

But Sharman also confessed that some directors’ would also be considerate. “When I would call the directors and they would talk very respectfully, some even called for a meeting. See, people from showbiz business understand what it takes to be here. So whether you work together or not, that doesn’t really matter. In fact, even today, I just pick up the call and dial to people I want to work with,” said Sharman who made his debut in Bollywood with Godmother in 1999.
