In a recent update in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the release of A G Perarivalan, who is one of the life convicts in the assassination case. It is reported that Perarivalan alias Arivu was 19-years-old when he was arrested on June 11, 1991. He was accused of having bought two 9-volt Golden power battery cells for Sivarasan, the LTTE man who masterminded the conspiracy. At that time, the batteries were used in the bomb that killed Rajiv Gandhi on May 21 that year.

A bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai made an observation that the Tamil Nadu Cabinet took the decision to grant remission to Perarivalan on relevant considerations. The bench also said that inordinate delay by the Tamil Nadu governor in exercising his powers under Article 161 of the Constitution can be subject to judicial review.

Uttar Pradesh: Man arrested for packing non-veg food in newspapers with photos of deities
Talib has been booked under Section 295 A (deliberate act intended to stomp on the religious sentiments of any group) of the IPC.

A man in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal has been arrested for selling non-veg packed newspapers that feature photos of Hindu deities. The Hindu Jagran Manch (HJM) district Kailash Gupta has filed an FIR against the person at the Sadar Police Station for insulting the religious beliefs of a particular community. The man has been identified as Mohammad Talib.

Talib has been booked under Section 295 A (deliberate act intended to stomp on the religious sentiments of any group) of the IPC. According to the reports, the Uttar Pradesh police have found newspapers with photos of deities in huge numbers at the hotel counter named Mehak Restaurant.

On questioning the Mehak Restaurant, the owner said that his worker had bought newspapers from a salvage store and used these newspapers to wrap food items for customers, just like many restaurants do, without realizing that these newspapers depict photos of Hindu deities.

The family member of Talib, who has been running the restaurant since 2012, said newspapers have been used to pack food items for years. He further said that no one remembers the headlines or photographs in the newspapers before using them to wrap food items.

Earlier, during the Navaratri festival, a local Hindi daily reported that Talib used to pack non-veg items in the newspapers that depicted photos of Hindu deities. According to Circle officer Jitendra Kumar, police rushed to the hotel after receiving a report on Sunday night and seized the objectionable items. Owing to the complex situation, police instantly filed an FIR and detained the owner of the restaurant for insulting a certain group’s religious beliefs.
