Nalini files petition in Madras HC seeking parole extension

Chennai: While the Madras High Court granted one month parole for S Nalini to attend her daughter’s wedding, the life convict has once again appealed to the judicial body seeking an extension to one more month.

It is learnt that the court has instructed the prison department to respond to the petition.

Being one of the seven life convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, Nalini was granted 30 days parole and released from Vellore prison 25 July while she sought six months parole.

P Pugalenthi, Nalini’s counsel, had submitted a petition to the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of prisons of Vellore, K Jeyabharathy, and State Home Secretary in August seeking extension and is learnt that the DIG had rejected the request and has taken the matter to court today. The request was sent to the Prisons Department.
