A. G. Perarivalan, who was serving a life sentence in the murder case of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, has been granted bail. Justice L Nageswara Rao and Justice BR Gavai have granted bail in the case.

It is noteworthy that in this case, the first of the seven people to be sentenced to life imprisonment was granted bail. Sankaranarayanan Azhar appeared on behalf of Perarivalan in this case. Following this, another lawyer of Perarivalan, Prabhu told a press conference today that Perarivalan has been granted bail today.

The court ordered him to remain on bail until the final hearing. Perarivalan has accepted this and has been granted bail. The other six are likely to be granted bail following Perarivalan. The lawyer says seven are likely to get bail as the case against them is the same.

He said, "But the other six have to file a separate petition in this case. But I think it will not be necessary. The final hearing in the case is set for next month. A total of 7 people are likely to get bail. In bulk, only one order is likely to come. I expect the Supreme Court to order the Governor to follow the Cabinet decision of the State Government."

Today, all the arguments of the central government were rejected. Judges have rejected the control government's argument that we have the right to grant bail or release. The judges did not accept any of their arguments.
