S Nalini, Rajiv Gandhi Assassination Convict To Appear Before Madras High Court Seeking Parole

The Madras High Court has allowed a plea made by S Nalini, a convict in the Rajiv Gandhi Assassination case, to appear to argue for the granting of the parole. Nalini wants to seek parole to make arrangements for her daughter's wedding.

The Court has allowed Nalini to be produced before the Court on July 5, Friday at 2.15 pm. with concern raised by Additional Public Prosecutor, Iyyapparaj, the Court also directed the State shall take appropriate safety measures while escorting Nalini to the Court.

In this view Court stated that "How can we stop her from appearing? She may engage a counsel or she may not, that is her choice... nothing wrong with that."

The Habeas Corpus Petition filled by Nalini highlights that she has been imprisoned for 27 years, during which period she has not once availed the option of ordinary leave. It is argued that as a life convict, she is entitled to ordinary leave for a one month period every two years. Nalini has prayed that she be allowed to go on ordinary leave for a six month period in order to make wedding arrangements for her daughter.

A representation containing such request was made to the Deputy Inspector General, Vellore in February also, it was forwarded to the Tamil Nadu government, which is yet to respond to the same. A similar plea was also made by Nalini's mother under the Tamil Nadu Suspension of Sentence Rules, 1982 in May, which has yet haven't received any response till date.

This caused Nalini to approach the High Court for her short-term release. Where she has prayed,

"... that the Hon’ble Court be pleased to issue a WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS directing the respondents to produce the petitioner S Nalini.. now confined as a life convict in Special Prison for Women, Vellore, before the Hon’ble Court and to release her on ordinary leave for a period of six months in accordance with law, and thus render justice."
