Supreme Court has rejected Rajiv Gandhi's assassin Nalini Sriharan's plea seeking early release from prison. Nalini has moved SC challenging 435(1) of the criminal procedure code that mandated the Tamil Nadu government to consult the Centre before releasing the eight convicts facing life imprisonment in the case. Nalini Sriharan, along with seven others, is currently lodged in Vellore Central Prison in Tamil Nadu. Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in a suicide bomb attack in Sriperumbedur, Tamil Nadu, on May 21 1991.
