The CBI has received the "documentation" confirming the death of LTTE Chief V Prabhakaran, prime accused in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination from the government of Sri Lanka, Home Minister P Chidambaram said here today.

"The CBI has told me that they received documentation from the Government of Sri Lanka confirming the death of Prabhakaran," the Home Minister said.

The CBI had said in a recent RTI reply that it was still awaiting the certificate of Prabhakaran’s death from the authorities in Sri Lanka.

Lankan forces had recovered the body of Prabhakaran on May 18 last year.
