Rajiv Gandhi assassination convict gets bail, after serving for over 32 years in jail

The Supreme Court granted AG Perarivalam, the assassination convict of Rajiv Gandhi, bail on Wednesday, saying the court believes Perarivalam is entitled to bail because he has already served more than 30 years of his sentence.

The news: “Taking into account the fact that the applicant has spent over 30 years in prison, we are of the considered view that he is entitled to be released on bail, in spite of the vehement opposition by the Centre,” the bench noted. 

  • The court stated that the bail will be conditional on Perarivalan’s compliance with the trial court’s restrictions, and that he must report to the local police station in Jolarpettai during the first week of every month.

According to additional solicitor general KM Narataj, Perarivalan has previously benefited from a mercy petition once, and his death sentence was modified to life in 2014 by the Supreme Court.
