    Rajiv Gandhi was murdered, forget party politics,he was PM of our country and belonged to the whole country, even if his daughter had pardoned the killers, the country had not pardoned them .15 other people had been killed, thier near and dear ones had not pardoned the killers. There has to be zero tolerance for killers. In the Baliga murder case also what you say is correct, the killers are moving about freely.In future no criminal will be afraid, as he knows he will be free in a short time.
