Rajiv Ghandi’s assasination: AG Perarivalan and CPI ask case revision

Appeal filed by convicted AG Perarivalan in the assassination case of Rajiv Ghandi 1999 had been rejected by the Supreme Court. The convicted’s plea against his sentence had not been taken into consideration. For the Supreme Court considers that there is no need for revocation in this case.

The CPI uses an affidavit and made a motion in questioning the extent of the accused implications in the case. The Supreme Court, notwithstanding this evidence, however argue that it cannot be taken into account for the case re-opening. The Supreme Court has also set an ultimatum of four weeks upon the CPI to provide further evidence of the origin of the explosive used in the former Prime Minister’s assassination.

AG Perarivalan had been life- sentenced and had spent 26 years in prison.He is accused of providing two nine-volt batteries used in the explosive belt. However, in his court statement last year, he argued that the CPI failed to include in his official statement that he was not aware of the purpose of the batteries he supplied. Having spent 14 years in confinement, AG Perarivalan was put on the death row before getting his sentence changed to life imprisonment.

A former CBI officer declaration’s states that the accused was not questioned properly, causing important details to be omitted from the official statement. The latter confirms that

Perarivalan mentioned that he only provided the batteries unknowing its use. According to Perarivalan, the culprit lives in Sri Lanka and has until now not been called by the police for investigation.

VIDEO: Pilot puts air conditioning on full blast and unleashes chaos aboard AirAsia plane in India

The pilot decided to force the passengers to leave the plane, who refused to do so due to the heavy rain that was falling at that time.

Passengers of the AirAsia airline travelling from Calcutta to Bagdogra (India) on Wednesday went through an agonizing situation while waiting for their plane to take off. They got on the aircraft with half an hour delay, and once on board, they waited for an hour and a half more, when the pilot ordered them to leave the plane without explaining the reasons. However, people refused to leave the aircraft due to the heavy rain that was falling on the airport at the time, local media reported.

Faced with this situation, the pilot decided to force them out by putting the air conditioning fan at full capacity. What follows was a chaos! Indeed, after a few seconds, there was a pandemonium aboard the aeroplane, as shown in the video, as a dense fog began to fill the cabin and passengers rushed out to the exits. Also, there were women who began to vomit and children who started crying.

AirAsia apologized in a statement for the delay of the flight, but regarding the fog justified what happened saying that it is a “common phenomenon” when the air conditioning works in conditions of high humidity.

India and China are discussing the creation of an Oil Buyers Club

The aim of this shopping community is to be able to negotiate better prices with oil-exporting countries, according to a source from India’s oil ministry.

The two states plan to import more US crude oil in the future to reduce OPEC’s impact on the global oil market and prices.

India has been saying for months that oil prices have risen too high to be sustainable for many oil-importing countries. With OPEC’s cartel fuelling chaos with prices, India and China examined the possibility of founding an Oil Buyers Club that could negotiate better terms with sellers and get more US crude oil to reduce the dominance of the oil exporters. ( As a humorous reminder, this Oil Buyers Club has nothing to do with the hollywood movie Dallas Buyers Club starring Matthew McConaughey who played an AIDS patient. Matthew was also won best actor oscar at the Academy Awards.)

Last month, as prices for Brent crude briefly rose above $ 80 a barrel – the highest since late 2014 – gasoline and diesel prices in India also rose to a five-year high, also reflecting a weaker rupee against the US dollar.

An Oil Buyers Club could be a boon for India and China

Logically therefore, India is concerned that rising oil prices are detrimental to its economy and “stable and moderate” oil prices are needed.

On Thursday 14th June, following the OPEC summit in India, the asian subcontinent clearly illustrated its position in global energy demand and the need for responsible pricing that balances the interests of both producer and consumer countries as far as petroleum products are concerned. Furthermore, India proposed creating transparent and flexible oil and gas markets for the collective welfare of one and all…
