The controversy surrounding the death of Rajiv Gandhi, Prime Minister of India refuses to die down.
There were unsolved knots in the enquiry, the role of Chandraswamy and others.
Despite warnings the meeting at Siperumbudur was held, at a remote place.
A prominent Congress leader from Tamil Nadu absented himself suddenly for the meeting.
There were also indications from the French Intelligence about the impending assassination.
There were also reports that it was an inside job.

“Bofors would not leave Quatrocchi.
For both LTTE and Quatrocchi ’Rajiv Dead’ was the solution.
So a conspiracy was hatched in a Five Star Paris Hotel among Anton Balasingham of LTTE and Quatrocchi.
This meeting was captured by The French Intelligence Agency, on camera.”
An Inside Job:
I have the evidence to prove that the Rajiv Gandhi murder was an inside job. But the SIT headed by then Inspector General of Police DR Karthikeyan never pushed the investigation in the right direction. The CBI took over the investigation on 24 May 1991, three days after the brutal murder. The team consisted of Karthikeyan, four DIGs, eight SPs, 14 deputy SPs, 44 inspectors and 55 subinspectors and constables. The members were handpicked by Karthikeyan. Most of them have a proven track record. They investigated the case for almost a year and filed the chargesheet on 20 May 1992. But the chargesheet revealed holes in the investigation and the bungling of the SIT. Even a constable would have done a better job in the case if he had got one year to investigate it. The designated court has convicted all the accused and it’s a fact that the SC acquitted 19 of the accused as the court found there was no substance in the evidence produced to prove their role in the conspiracy…
Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on 21 May at 10.20 pm at Sriperumbudur when he was about to campaign for Maragatham Chandrasekar, the Congress candidate. Rajiv had already completed his campaign in Tamil Nadu. But on 18 May, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) charted his tour and included the campaign at Sriperumbudur after Visakhapatnam. But Dina Thanthi, a Tamil daily, published a news item on 17 May that Rajiv was going to address an election rally at Sriperumbudur on 21 May. None of the Congress leaders were aware about such a meeting. On 18 May, the committee responsible for Rajiv’s tour programme held a meeting at AICC and finalised the tour. How was the Dina Thanthi reporter able to write a story on Rajiv’s tour schedule before it was finalised by the AICC?
On 19 May, Vazhapadi Ramamurthy, then Tamil Nadu Congress chief, objected to Rajiv addressing a rally at Sriperumbudur and staying there — he made this clear when he deposed before the trial court. His objections were never taken into consideration as Maragatham was using her clout in Delhi to get Rajiv to address a meeting in her constituency. So the meeting was scheduled and local Congress leaders approached the police authorities to grant permission to hold the meeting at a school ground. But later, for reasons known to Maragatham, the venue was changed to a temple ground.
For changing the venue, the Congress leaders never sought police permission. And there was no proper security arrangement at the meeting.:
Now comes the new shocker from none other than the Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddramiah.
Assassination attempt at Mysore;
“According to CM Siddaramaiah, there was an attempt to kill Rajiv Gandhi during his visit to Mysore.
Some 10 days before he was assassinated in Tamil Nadu, the former PM was touring Mysore, campaigning for the parliamentary polls. While his cavalcade was traveling on Narasimharaja Boulevard near Lalitha Mahal, an old woman had blocked the convoy leading to a chain of accidents.
Senior Congress leader Azeez Sait’s car rammed into another vehicle as the woman appeared suddenly, Siddaramaiah said, claiming it to be an attempt to kill Gandhi. “Only 10 days later he was killed. It is sad that the party lost a young leader. Only after his assassination was the Mysore incident taken seriously,” he stated, after paying homage to the former Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajiv Gandhi at Congress office on Tuesday. “
