Nalini argued for herself at Madaras High Court, requested six months of parole
Convict of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination, Nalini Sriharan, walked into the Madras High Court on Friday with a hope that she could get the much-needed parole. She said that she required the parole for organizing her daughter’s wedding.
However, the court refused her request. Though it granted a month’s parole, there were multiple conditions involved with it.
It was in April that Nalini Sriharan had filed a habeas corpus petition looking for an ordinary leave of six months
She had contested that all life convicts are entitled to at least a month of ordinary leave after they have completed two years in prison. Moreover, she pointed out that she had not taken any leaves in the duration of 27 years in jail.
The last time that Nalini Sriharan was granted parole was in March 2016 in lieu of attending her father’s last rites.
Nalini’s daughter resides in London with her grandparents. And she is all set to get married. But her mother feels she has been unable to attend to any of her needs. Will the one month be enough to carry out all her duties? Or did she deserve more than what she has got? Share your views in the comments section below.
