Rajiv Gandhi Nalini Sriharan, one of the convicts in the murder case, is being released on parole for one month from today after completing the formalities. The Tamil Nadu government has granted parole to Nalini Hariharan, one of the seven accused in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. Nalini’s lawyer Radhakrishnan said: “Nalini, who was granted parole by the state government on Thursday, will be released on Friday after completing the bail formalities.”
The Tamil Nadu government on Thursday informed the Madras High Court that Nalini has been granted parole for one month by the government following repeated requests by her ailing mother Padma. State government counsel Hassan Mohamed gave this information to a division bench of Justices PN Prakash and R Hemlata during the hearing of the habeas corpus petition of Nalini’s mother S Padma. After recording this statement, the bench closed the hearing on the petition.
In her petition, Padma had said that she has many diseases and wants her daughter to stay with her. He said that in this regard he gave several applications for parole to the state government for a month but to no avail.

In May 1991, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by a Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) suicide bomber during an election rally in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. 14 other people also died in this attack. Nalini and six others — Murugan, Santhan, Perarivalan, Jayakumar, Robert Payas, Ravichandran and Nalini — are serving life sentences in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
