The Centre informed the Supreme Court that the Tamil Nadu government had no jurisdiction to order the release of seven life convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case as such a power was vested only with the Union of India.

In its rejoinder to Tamil Nadu's reply justifying the February 19th decision to release Murugan and six other life convicts, the Centre said “the conduct of the State Government in proposing/considering/granting remission to the seven convicts is apparent in its breach of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution as the manner in which the convicts have been selected for remission is for extraneous consideration.
