The Supreme Court has ruled that it will hear the petitions of three men who are challenging the death sentence given to them for their role in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1991. Weeks before they were scheduled to be hanged in September, Santhan, Murugan and Perarivalan had appealed to the Madras High Court, which stayed their execution.
