Supreme Court grants AG Perarivalan bail to Rajiv Gandhi assassination case

The Hight court also noted that there were no charges against Perarivalan while he was in jail.

Perarivalan, who was convicted in the murder case of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, is serving a 30-year sentence. The union government had objected to granting bail to Perarivalan.

Meanwhile, the petition filed by Perarivalan seeking his release was heard in the Supreme Court today. It asked for bail as the grand jury was already on parole but could not go out.

In this context, the Supreme Court has granted bail to Perarivalan in the Rajiv Gandhi murder case.

The High court also ordered that bail be granted as he has been in jail for more than 30 years and that he should appear before the Jolarpet police station on a monthly basis.
