Chennai: Madras High Court on Tuesday granted 24-hour parole to Nalini, a convict in the assassination of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. The request was made for a 3-day parole which was cut short to 24 hours.
The parole will start from 4 pm on Tuesday and will end at 4 pm on Wednesday. This parole is granted for attending her father’s ritual. She was also given time off for 12 hours to perform her father’s last rights last month.
Nalini’s brother Bhagyanathan told NewsX that he is very happy that his sister would be joining him at 4 pm on Tuesday.
Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on May 21, 1991. A suicide bombing in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, in Tamil Nadu took his life.
