CHENNAI: Nalini Sriharan, a life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, has been released on a month’s parole to attend the wedding of her daughter. The Madras High Court had granted her the leave earlier this month. During the term of her parole, Nalini will stay in Vellore and cannot speak to either politicians or the media.
She had been granted a day’s parole last year to make funeral arrangements after the death of her father.
Nalini was initially sentenced to death for her involvement in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. However, her death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by the Tamil Nadu government on April 24, 2000.
She has been in prison for more than 27 years.
