Indian President Ram Nath Kovind has rejected the Tamil Nadu government’s request to release the seven prisoners convicted for the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on May 21, 1991.
 
Kovind conveyed to the government that the “Centre doesn’t concur with its view” to release the prisoners. The President is bound by the advice of his Council of Ministers in such matters.
 
In the last four years, the State government has written twice to the Home Ministry to pardon the convicts and release them on humanitarian grounds.
 
The Indian Supreme Court in December 2015 said the State government had no power to release the convicts without the Centre’s concurrence.
