The Central Bureau of Investigations has approached Interpol to expedite its request to question Kumaran Pathmanathan of LTTE for the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Sources said Interpol’s help has also been sought to convince Sri Lanka to assist in the case and reply to the judicial requests, which have been pending for years.

CBI feels the case has been held up for very long and should be wrapped up quickly after getting all information from Sri Lanka.

KP was nabbed in Malaysia in August 2009 after which he was kept in detention in Colombo till late 2012.

The Multi-Disciplinary Monitoring Agency, which runs under CBI and comprises officers from the agency, IB and RAW, had recently got another year’s extension to complete its probe.

Even though MDMA informally examined KP in Sri Lanka once, it is yet to get his custody and formally interrogate him.

During his informal questioning, KP had reportedly denied having any knowledge about the conspiracy behind Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination, which took place on May 21, 1991 when an LTTE suicide bomber blew herself up at an election rally in Tamil Nadu.
