New Delhi - A life convict in the assassination case of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi walked out of a southern Indian jail on Thursday on a month's parole for her daughter's wedding.
"Nalini Sriharan has been released on parole. It comes with several conditions," said an official at the Special Prison for Women in Vellore town in Tamil Nadu state.
Rajiv Gandhi was killed in a suicide bombing by Sri Lanka's rebel Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in May 1991 in Sriperumpudur in Tamil Nadu.
Indian security agencies that unravelled the plot found Sriharan, now 52, was part of the assassination squad.
Sriharan, an Indian national, was initially sentenced to death, but this was commuted to life imprisonment after she gave birth to her daughter in jail. Her husband Murugan, a Sri Lankan, is also serving a life sentence.
