Chennai, Sep 12 : The Madras High Court on Thursday refused to extend the parole granted to S Nalini, one of the seven life convicts in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. When her plea seeking to extend the parole further till October 15 to make arrangements for her daughter's marriage came up for hearing,
a Division Bench comprising Justices M M Sundresh and RMT Teekka Raman declined to extend the parole.
Nalini was earlier granted one month parole (Ordinary leave) on July 25 and it was extended by three weeks on August 22. Since the extended parole period was to expire on September 19, she moved the present plea seeking extension till October 15.
Refusing her plea, the Bench said 'we have already granted enough leave and it cannot be extended any further'.
'We cannot go beyond the rule and keep extending the leave', the Bench added. On a suggestion from the Bench, Nalini's counsel M Radhakrishnan withdrew the plea following which it was dismissed as withdrawn. (UNI)
