Rajiv Gandhi assassination convicts to stay in jail: SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court said on Wednesday, that the three convicts in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case will remain in jail for now. The court's decision has come in the wake of Tamil Nadu government's decision to set free the three convicts. The court said that a three-judge bench will decide on the matter later while adding that the states do not have the power to remit sentence. The Supreme Court said the state government has no unilateral power to decide remission for convicts of heinous crimes without the consultation with the Centre, in case where the matter has been investigated by a central agency.
