Contributing sentiments towards policy:

70% : The SC had in February 2014 commuted the death sentence awarded to him and two others - Murugan and Santhan - to life term on the ground that their mercy petitions had not been decided for a very long time.
55% : A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and Deepak Gupta asked the state government to inform the court about the fate of the mercy plea filed under Article 161 of the Constitution, which lays down the power of governor to grant pardons and to suspend, remit or commute sentences awarded by a court in certain cases.
55% : Perarivalan was convicted and sentenced to death for procuring batteries for the bomb that an LTTE cadre used to trigger the blast which killed the former PM in 1991.
43% : The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought to know from Tamil Nadu the status of a mercy plea filed by Rajiv Gandhi assassination case convict A G Perarivalan before the governor seeking suspension of his life sentence since he has already spent more than 28 years in prison.
38% : Perarivalan, who at the time of crime was 19 years old, had pleaded that he did not know for what purpose the accused had asked him to procure the batteries.
