As the clemency plea for the three death row convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case grew louder, family of the victims killed along with the former Prime Minister on Friday demanded that Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan should be hanged.

Joined by a large numbers of Congress workers, the family of victims sat on a day-long fast opposing the clemency for the three convicts.

Former Union Minister EVKS Elangovan and other Congress leaders also participated in the fast.

The Tamil Nadu Assembly on August 30 had passed an “unanimous” resolution requesting the President to reconsider and commute the death sentence awarded to the three convicts.

The Madras High Court, too, on the same day stayed the execution of the accused for eight weeks, which was earlier scheduled for Friday.

The three are currently lodged in Vellore Jail. (Source: Indianexpress)

    Is Tamilnadu agenda's the root cause for all the trouble for Tamil people world over ? TN seems to have an unholy agenda and pushing tamil's world over for that agenda. This is the reason for trouble for Tamils. Let us Tamil's be peaceful in our own countries... and blend with others...
