Madras High Court refuses to extend parole of Rajiv Gandhi assassination convict Nalini Sriharan

The Madras High Court has refused to extend ordinary leave granted to S Nalini Sriharan, who is a convict in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's assassination.

S Nalini Sriharan was out on parole for making arrangements for her daughter's wedding.

The Madras High Court said that it had already extended the parole by three weeks.

Nalini’s parole ends on September 15. She had requested for an extension of parole till October 15.

Last month, the court had granted her 30 days ordinary leave for making arrangements for her daughter's marriage. After being released from the Vellore Central Prison on July 25, Nalini has been residing at Sathuvachari there.

Lodged in prison for over 27 years, Nalini had originally sought a six-month leave to make arrangements for her daughter's marriage.

Nalini and 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 on May 21, 1991.
