Rajiv killing: SC to hear centre's plea Thursday

The Supreme Court will hear Thursday the centre's plea seeking to restrain the Tamil Nadu government from releasing the conspirators in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P. Sathasivam agreed to hear the plea after Additional Solicitor General Siddharth Luthra told the court the Tamil Nadu government had no jurisdiction to release the conspirators.

The apex court had last week stayed the release of three key conspirators whose death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment on the grounds of inordinate delay in deciding their mercy petition.
