A top LTTE leader Kumaran Pathmanathan has apologised to India for V Prabhakaran’s "mistake" of killing former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

He said Rajiv’s assassination was "well planned and done actually with Prabhakaran and (LTTE intelligence chief Pottu Amman). Everyone knows the truth".

In an interview to CNN-IBN Firstpost, Pathmanathan, who was Treasurer of LTTE and its chief arms procurer, said "I want to say to the Indian people and especially to the Gandhi family…I want to apologise for Prabhakaran’s mistake. Please forgive us. We beg you….Sorry for all this. We know the feelings of the son (Rahul) of Rajiv Gandhi….How father and daughter are attached (reference to Rajiv’s daughter Priyanka)".

    Pathmanathan should tell India the wrongs of Rajiv also, or India will never learn.
