In connection to the murder of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, 7 people including Sandhan, Perarivalan, Nalini, Robert Pious, Ravichandran, Jayakumar were given imprisonment, of whom Santhan, Perarivalan, and Murugan were given death sentence, while the rest were given life imprisonment. While the death sentence people had sent mercy petitions to the president. in 2014 it was reduced to life imprisonment.
