The Supreme Court on November 11 directed the premature release of the six, including Nalini Sriharan and R P Ravichandran, serving life term in the case. It noted that the Tamil Nadu government has recommended remission of their sentence.
Addressing her first ever press conference, Nalini, answering a question, said she told Vadra about whatever she knew on the matter. Asked if Vadra appeared strong or "emotionally cried," Nalini said: "Yes, she was very emotional."
The Congress had termed "totally unacceptable and completely erroneous" the SC order directing the premature release of the six remaining convicts serving life sentence in Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
