Rajiv killers' pleas adjourned till March 27
The Tamil Nadu government has filed an additional affidavit in support of their pleas.
Chennai: The Madras High Court adjourned till March 27 the hearing on the petitions by the three men convicted for assassinating former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi to commute their death sentences, while the Tamil Nadu government filed an additional affidavit in support of their pleas.
The court had on August 30 last year stayed the death sentence of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
This trio had earlier sought a stay on their execution on the ground that the President had taken 11 years in deposing their mercy pleas. They had termed the delay as illegal and unconstitutional.
The High Court had asked the Centre and State to reply within eight weeks as to why there was such a long delay in clearing their petitions.
