A division bench of Justice MM Sundresh and Justice Teekaa Raman was hearing the plea seeking an extension of her parole till 15 October.

The court had on 22 August extended her parole by three weeks after she sought an extension to complete arrangements for her daughter’s marriage.

Nalini, lodged in prison for the past 28 years, was released from Vellore Central Prison on 25 July, after the court had granted her parole for 30 days.

In 2016, she was granted a 12-hour parole to attend the funeral of her father.

Charithra Sriharan, Nalini’s daughter, was born in prison and is currently a medical practitioner in London.

Nalini and six other people were sentenced to life imprisonment in the case.

In May 1991, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by a Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) suicide bomber during an election rally in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. The attack also left 14 other people dead.
