Hearing over RTI plea of Rajiv case death row convict putoff
Chennai: The video conferencing session of Perarivalan, a death row convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, with the Chief Information Commissioner planned on Monday over his RTI query has been postponed, a top police official said.
"The session has been postponed. There is no information on when would be the next session," ADGP (Prisons) J K Tripathy told PTI.
The hearing was to take place today on Perarivalan`s Right to Information (RTI) application seeking to know the grounds on which the President had rejected his mercy petition.
Perarivalan is lodged in the Central Prison at Vellore, along with two other death row convicts Murugan and Santhan, whose execution, scheduled for September 9, 2011, was stayed by Madras High Court for six weeks in August of that year. The case has since been transferred to the Supreme Court.
