CHENNAI: Condemning the Central government’s attempts to increase the level of punishment meted to the seven convicts jailed in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, PMK founder S Ramadoss on Saturday said that with the CBI officer V Thiyagarajan who interrogated one of the seven convicts Perarivaalan revealing the possibility of conspiracy in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, it should be thoroughly enquired as it thwarts the very basis of the case against the seven convicted.

In a not altogether unrelated matter, Ramadoss welcomed the directive of the Supreme Court to install CCTVs in all police stations to prevent any possible atrocities against the persons brought for interrogation. Ramadoss also suggested that the 33 per cent reservation to women in the police force should be implemented following the directive of the Supreme Court that all police stations should have a minimum of two women police personnel. He also demanded that the State government give due compensation to those who were tortured during interrogation.
