Incidents related to Rajiv Gandhi's assassination


The assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, the sixth Prime Minister of India in an explosion, took place in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu, India on 21 May 1991. Rajiv Gandhi's assassination was carried out by LTTE suicide bomber Thenmozhi Rajaratnam, also known as Dhanu, at 10:21 p.m. At the time India was embroiled, through the Indian Peace Keeping Force, in the Sri Lankan Civil War.

The charge-sheet, filed by the Special Investigation Team, provided a detailed account of how Prabhakaran and his team of leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), ordered Rajiv Gandhi's assassination, from Jaffna, the LTTE's  stronghold in Sri Lanka. The suicide bomber Dhanu (actual name Thenmozhi) detonated the explosive in her belt-bomb that she had strapped around her waist, at Sriperumbudur (Tamilnadu). Other co-conspirators in the assasin team were Sivarasan, Shanmugam, Shankar, Shubha, Hari Babu etc.
