Nalini moves HC for 3-day leave to attend father’s rites
Nalini Sriharan, serving life term in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, has moved the Madras high court, seeking three days’ leave from Tuesday for attending the 16th day obsequies of her father, who passed away last month.
In her petition, Nalini submitted that she had made a representation on March 2 to the Superintendent of Special Prison for Women in Vellore, where she is lodged, seeking three days’ leave but the official had not responded so far.
She said she was granted parole for 12 hours on February 24 to attend the cremation of her father. The 16th day obsequies of her father is scheduled to be held on March 9 in Kottur. She has sought three days leave from Tuesday to attend it. The petition is likely to come up for hearing on Tuesday.
