Rajiv assassin Nalini back in jail after attending father’s last rites
Nalini Sriharan, who is undergoing life imprisonment in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, was lodged back in the Vellore prison on Wednesday evening, after she attended the last rites of her father during the 12-hour parole she was granted. In her 25 years of incarceration, this is the second time she has got parole. In 2004, she had got a similar parole to attend the marriage of her brother. She left the Vellore Central Prison (Women's Jail) at 6.50 am under police escort and reached Chenani at 10 am and attended the last rites of her father Sankara Narayanan at Kotturpuram. “She started for Vellore at 3.25 pm from Chennai and reached the prison at 6.45 pm, and she was immediately lodged in her cell,” a senior women’s prison official said.
