Why was the SPG cover for Rajiv Gandhi withdrawn? Why was the decision to give him NSG cover taken only on 20th May 1991 when the threat perception was known months in advance.
Rajeev Gandhi was assassinated on May 21 1991. These are some key questions asked by K Raghothaman, the CBI’s lead investigator in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
Raghothaman speaking exclusively to OneIndia said within a month of Rajiv’s security being withdrawn, he was given cover by the Delhi police. Is that the kind of cover to be given when the threat perception was so high. International agencies had picked up the threat perception and the same was conveyed by Palestine as well.
