Chennai, Aug 20 : S Nalini (52) one of the seven life convicts in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, on Tuesday moved the Madras High Court seeking one month extension of her parole to complete arrangements for her daughter's marriage. Admitting her plea, a Division Bench comprising Justice M M Sundaresh and Justice M Nirmal Kumar directed the Tamil Nadu state government to file its reply by August 22.
Nalini moved the court after the Vellore prison authorities refused her request for an 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.
Stating that her daughter was residing in London with her husband Murugan alias Sriharan’s brother, Nalini said and they were likely to visit India in the first week of next month. She said after their arrival, she needed time to make arrangements for the marriage and prayed for extending the parole by one more month.UNI
