Jain Commission's Final Report 1

(p.211) 28 Jain Commission's Final Report1

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

The article analyses the Jain Commission report on the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi. The report is full of flaws and violative of the law. It indulges in speculation. Despite the Supreme Court ruling that it was not the job of a commission to point out to the Union Government what civil or criminal action can be taken, the Jain Commission does that. The report of Justice P. Jaganmohan Reddy, appointed as Commission of Inquiry in June 1977 to probe into the Nagarwala case, seven years after the deed was done is a good example of a judge basing his conclusion on the facts of the case and not merely on suspicion.

Keywords:   Jain Commission report, Rajiv Gandhi, Supreme Court, Union Government, Justice P. Jaganmohan Reddy
