In spite of the feeble protests of Tamilnadu chief minister Karunanidhi, the Union caretaker government of India headed by Dr Manmohan Singh sent a diplomatic missive to the Government of Sri Lanka to process the extradition of LTTE chief if he is captured alive.
LTTE Prabhakaran is the chief accused in the Rajiv Gandhi assassinasion.
Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapksa on Wednesday said there will be no amnesty for Tamil Tiger supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran as he has spurned chances for pardon by not giving up arms.
“In keeping with the traditions of Buddhism, the government was ready to pardon those ready to change their ways to a better path. It has shown such clemency to Karuna Amman and Pillaiyan, who had been rehabilitated in democracy, and were now a Minister and a Chief Minister respectively.
