Chennai: Rajiv Gandhi assassination convict Nalini Sriharan’s parole plea will today be heard at 10:30 a.m. in the Madras High Court.
The Tamil Nadu Government has last week sought the opinion of Ministry of Home Affairs seeking its opinion on releasing all the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi Assassination case, after which one of the convicts, Nalini, had moved the court seeking three days parole to attend post funeral rituals of her father Sankaranayanan.
Nalini, on February 24, got a 12-hour emergency leave to attend her father’s funeral rites in Chennai. Now she says she wants to take part in the 16th day ceremony for her father.
The seven convicts which the state government wants to release include the three who were awarded death sentence but later remitted to life imprisonment by the apex court.
