Santhan, also known as T Suthendraraja, was one of the seven prisoners released in 1991 following the death of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. He passed away on wednesday at a hospital in chennai, according to a hospital spokesperson. A few days prior, Santhan, a citizen of Sri Lanka, was admitted for treatment to the rajiv gandhi government General Hospital. Following a heart arrest, he died at 7:50 am, according to hospital dean Dr. v Theranirajan.
Dr. Theranirajan stated, "He was admitted for treatment of liver failure." He went into cardiac arrest this morning at approximately four in the morning, but CPR was able to save his life. But a little while later, at 7:50 am, he went away."

In 1999, the supreme court affirmed the death sentences of three prisoners, including Santhan, for their roles in the assassination plan. Perarivalan and Murugan were the other two. But in the end, reprieves were given to all three, and Santhan was freed in november 2022.
After being freed, Santhan was placed in a special camp near Trichy in accordance with indian laws pertaining to foreign nationals. The madras high court was recently notified by the tamil Nadu government that Santhan was granted temporary travel passports by Sri Lanka, allowing him to return to his own country.

One of the most important incidents in indian history is the 1991 killing of rajiv gandhi, which was carried out by a suicide bomber connected to the Liberation Tigers of tamil Eelam (LTTE). The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) claims that Santhan was a part of the LTTE's intelligence wing and was involved in the plot that resulted in the killing.
