Chennai: The Madras High Court on Thursday extended by three weeks, parole granted to S. Nalini, 52, one of the seven life convicts in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

Passing orders on a plea by her, seeking a one-month extension of her parole to complete arrangements for her daughter’s marriage, a division bench comprising of Justice M.M. Sundresh and Justice M. Nirmal Kumar extended her parole by three weeks.

Nalini moved the court after the Vellore prison authorities refused her request for extension of parole by a month. In her plea, she said despite her best efforts all arrangements for her daughter’s marriage could not be completed. She said she needed one more month to complete the wedding arrangements.

Nalini said that her daughter was residing in London with her husband Murugan alias Sriharan’s brother and was likely to visit India in the first week of next month. She said that after their arrival, she needed time to make arrangements for the marriage and prayed that the parole is extended by one more month.

On July 25, Nalini was released on a month’s parole (ordinary leave) to make arrangements for her daughter’s wedding. While granting parole, the court imposed a condition that she should not meet any political party leaders or give any interviews to the media.
