Convicts of Rajiv Gandhi assassination case would be hanged September 9th morning

Three accused sentenced to death by the Supreme Court in the Rajeev Gandhi assassination case. Authorities in Vellore Prison in Tamil Nadu have told the three accused, Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan, that they would be hanged till they die on the morning of September 9. 

The process to hold their death sentences was set in motion on Friday with the Vellore Prison authorities receiving the communication from Rashtrapathi Bhavan that the President of India has rejected the clemency petition filed by Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan, the three Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) activists. 

The three convicts are hoping against hope that they may get a reprieve from the hangman’s noose. A source close to them told that they would move the Madras High Court anytime from now challenging the President’s decision to decline clemency and hang them 11 years after they filed the clemency petition. They may approach chief minister Jayalalithaa with a plea to save them from the gallows.
