CHENNAI: The three men facing death penalty for the 1991 assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi will be hanged Sep 9 in Tamil Nadu's Vellore prison, a jail official said Friday.
Prison Superintendent R. Arivudainambi Friday afternoon received the official communication to carry out the execution of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan.
"We have informed the convicts about the date of hanging. The execution will be (carried out) Sep 9 early morning," Arivudainambi told IANS.
He said the movement of the convicts inside the prison will be restricted from now on.
"If they want any books from the library, they will be provided inside their cells but they won't be allowed to visit the library," he said.
Family members will still be allowed to meet them, he added.
On Aug 11, President Pratibha Patil rejected the mercy petition of the three men who were linked to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which ordered Gandhi's killing.
