Vellore: Nalini Sriharan, a convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, was on Wednesday granted a 12-hour parole to attend the last rites of her father.
She has been asked by the court to return to the prison in the evening, after leaving Vellore Central Prison (Women’s Jail) under police escort by 6.50 am.

She is on her way to Chennai where she will attend the cremation of her father Sankara Narayanan.

Nalini was sentenced to death by the trial court in the case on January 28, 1998. Her sentence was commuted to life term by the Tamil Nadu Governor on April 24, 2000.

In December 14 last year, she had moved the Madras High Court seeking a direction to Tamil Nadu government to consider her representation for premature release, saying she has undergone imprisonment for more than 24 years.
