More details about Rajiv Ghandi’s assassination revealed.
A documentary released by the People’s Movement against Death Penalty claimed that the Indian Central Bureau of Investigation had failed to record verbatim the confessional statement of A.G. Perarivalan alias Arivu, the convict facing death penalty in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
The shocking but delayed revelation was based on the interview of a former Superintendent of Police of the CBI who admitted that he failed to record verbatim the confessional statement of Perarivalan.
V. Thiagarajan who was the then CBI, SP of the Kerala Branch said he was assigned the task of recording the statement of accused persons in 1991.
He said Sivarasan, one of the prime suspects, had sent a message to the LTTE headquarters that the plot to kill Gandhi was not shared with anybody.
