NPnews24 online: Madras High Court directed Tamil Nadu government to file a reply to a plea of Nalini Sriharan, a convict in the Rajiv Gnadhi assassination case, seeking an extension of her ongoing parole by 30 days.
Bench comprising justices M M Sundresh and M Nirmal Kumar posted a petition by Nalini for further hearing. The petitioner submitted that she had moved the court as the deputy inspector general of prison. In her current petition, the convict said despite her “sincere efforts” she was not able to complete the arrangements for the marriage of her daughter within the leave period.
Lodged in prison for over 27 years, Nalini had originally sought a six-month leave to make arrangements for her daughter’s marriage.
Nalini with six other people are serving life imprisonment in the case related to the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi by a suicide bomber at an election rally in Sriperumbudur area of kanchipuram district in the state.
