Most parties have supported the release of the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, but the Tamil Nadu Congress has opposed it. Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in Sriperumbudur near Chennai at an election rally on 21 May 1991 by a female suicide bomber. State Congress chief KS Alagiri said a few months ago that if the culprits of the Rajiv Gandhi murder case would be released, there would be a demand for the release of “all the culprits of murder” who spent more than 25 years in jail. The Tamil Nadu government had recommended Governor Banwarilal Purohit to release the culprits in 2018.
