Chennai: Seeking the release of the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, Chidambaram MP and Viduthalai Chiruthaikal Katchi leader Thol Thirumavalavan today met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi.

He was accompanied by Arputhammal, mother of Perarivalan, one of the seven convicts undergoing life sentence in the case. Arputhammal has been moving heaven and earth for the past several decades to get her son released from prison, saying he was innocent of the crime.

After the Supreme Court put the ball in the court of the State government to release the convicts, the AIADMK government recommended to the Governor to order their release.
