Earlier this week, the Supreme Court ordered the release of all six remaining convicts serving life sentences in connection with the Rajiv Gandhi death assassination case, including Nalini Sriharan, R P Ravichandran, Santhan, Murugan, Robert Payas and Jayakumar.
“The decision of the Supreme Court to release the remaining killers of former prime minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi is totally unacceptable and completely incorrect,” said AICC General Secretary In-Charge Communications Jairam Ramesh.
Undoubtedly, the Congress Party criticizes it strongly and finds it wholly unsustainable. Sadly, the Supreme Court has not acted in accordance with the spirit of India on this issue,” he added.
