New Delhi: The row over the release of seven-convicted Rajiv Gandhi killers saw an expected turn on Wednesday when the convicts filed for Right to Information (RTI) Act pertaining to the premature release of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt.

There have been widespread protests in Tamil Nadu for the release of Rajiv Gandhi killers who have been sentenced to death by the Supreme Court. Many protesters demand from the Jayalalithaa government the release of the accused persons in the case who have served more than 25 years in prison.

The AIADMK supported the plea filed by the convicts and asked the RTI to seek information about Sanjay Dutt’s premature release in the 1993 blasts case. The lawyers cited common charges between the two and raised questions about why the Bollywood actor had been accorded early release.
