Board yet to decide on Nalini’s plea for release

india Updated: Jan 22, 2010 00:04 IST

The advisory board formed to consider the plea of Nalini, a life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, for her premature release, would submit its report to the Tamil Nadu government in a few days.

The government-constituted board, headed by District Collector C Rajendran, had met for over three hours on Wednesday and heard Nalini on her plea at the Vellore women's prison, where she is lodged.

Rajendran told mediapersons on Thursday that board members have to sit and prepare the report. However, it was for the state government to decide on its recommendations.

"We will be sending our report in a few days," he said.

In New Delhi, the Congress reacted guardedly to reports about Nalini’s premature release.

“These are extremely sensitive legal matters. There is nothing official which is in the public space or which is known to us. And I think it is absolutely inappropriate in the absence of any formal intimation for the Congress party to be reacting to it,” party spokesperson Manish Tewari said in New Delhi on Thursday.
