padma: Nalini, Rajiv killing case convict, gets month’s bail | India News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Rajiv Gandhi assassination life convict S Nalini is to be released on a month’s ordinary bail to take care of her ailing mother S Padma.
State public prosecutor Hasan Mohamed Jinnah made a submission to this effect before the division bench of Justice P N Prakash and Justice R Hemalatha.
The bench was hearing a plea moved by Padma, seeking direction to the authorities to consider her application to grant leave to her daughter.
When the plea came up for hearing, in view of the submissions made by the prosecutor, Padma requested the court to permit her to withdraw the plea.
Recording the same, the court dismissed the plea as withdrawn.
According to the petitioner, in 2018 the state cabinet passed a resolution for release of her daughter and all other convicts sentenced to life term in the assassination case. A recommendation to this effect was also made to the governor.
However, the governor is sitting on the recommendation without taking any decision for over two years, she said.
Since my health condition deteriorated I made an application to the superintendent of prison, special prison for women, Vellore, seeking grant of leave for my daughter so that she can take care of me, the petitioner said.
