End of Rajiv era

Rajiv was on a whirlwind tour of the country during the 1991 election. He visited some important States many times. Similarly, he went to Chennai again on May 21 for the second round of campaign. While he was participating in an election rally in Sri-Perambudur, he was killed by a suicide bomber. The Gandhi family lost third life for the country.


Investigation into Rajiv's killing took place. CBI Director D R Karthikeyan, a Karnataka cadre IPS Officer was head of the investigating team. Kartikeyan informed me that the suicide bomber had planned to explode the bomb in April when I was with Rajiv at Chennai. But she could not do it then. If the plan had succeeded then, I too could have been dead.
