Initiating a fresh probe angle in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, the CBI is now preparing a questionnaire for LTTE financier Kumaran Padmanathan on the basis of decade-old findings of MDMA, which has been investigating the conspiracy behind the former prime minister’s killing.

Multi-Disciplinary Monitoring Agency (MDMA), which has been granted another extension by the government despite noting for closure of this unit, has begun the work of preparing questions that would be sent to Sri Lanka where Padmanathan alias ‘KP’ is being questioned by the Lankan security, official sources said.

Padmanathan, the alleged financier and a key accused in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, was arrested in a Southeast Asian country and brought to Sri Lanka.

Declared as one of the most-wanted terrorists by Interpol, he is suspected to be a key person in LTTE’s global network for procuring weapons and other equipment.
