Chennai: The Madras High Court has extended the parole of Nalini Sriharan, a convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, by three weeks, news agency ANI reported on Friday.

 

The 52-year-old convict was given 30-day parole by the court on the fifth of last month to make arrangements for the marriage of her daughter Haritha, who is in London. Her daughter was born in the prison.
