Hearing on Rajiv Gandhi's killers' plea adjourned
The Madras High Court will now hear the plea of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan on January 31.
New Delhi: The hearing of the petition to commute the death sentences of Rajiv Gandhi's assassins has been adjourned. The Madras High Court will now hear the case on January 31.
The court had on Aug 30 stayed the death sentence of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan.
The 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.
