The Madras High Court has dismissed Nalini Sriharan's plea for release from jail, where she is serving a life term.
The Madras High Court today dismissed the plea of Nalini Sriharan, convicted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, demanding the release of seven life prisoners in the case.
Nalini had filed a case in the High Court, asking for the release of seven prisoners, including Nalini, who are serving life terms in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. Nalini argued that the government should ask the governor to respond to the state of Tamil Nadu's cabinet decision on the release of seven persons. It was argued that the Governor could not comment on a resolution passed by the Government of Tamil Nadu.
The verdict was postponed when bilateral arguments were completed. Now, Judges Subbiah and Saravanan, who read the verdict today, said, "We cannot accept Nalini's plea. Case dismissed."
