SC orders release of Rajiv Gandhi’s killers; Cong slams ruling

Supreme Court on Friday set free all the six convicts undergoing life imprisonment in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. Earlier, the Tamil Nadu government had earlier favoured the premature release of Rajiv Gandhi assassination case convicts Sriharan and R P Ravichandran, saying its 2018 advice for remission of their life sentence is binding upon the governor.
