The Madras High Court has sought a reply from the Tamil Nadu government over the petition filed by Nalini Murugan, convicted in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.
Nalini has requested that she argue her case herself for the six-month parole petition. She wants to leave to prepare for her daughter’s wedding.
A division bench of Justice Satyanarayanan and Justice Nirmal Kumar sought the reply from the Tamil Nadu government.
The case has been adjourned to June 11.
Nalini is one among the seven in prison for the assassination of former PM Rajiv Gandhi and also the longest-serving woman prisoner in the country.
Tamil Nadu government has already sent a recommendation to the Governor over the release of the seven convicts in the case.
