Dealing a severe blow to Rajiv Gandhi Assassination Case convict Nalini’s hopes, the Madras High Court dismissed her writ petition seeking premature release under General Amnesty Scheme ‘as the crime committed by her was cunning in conception.’ Dismissing her petition, a Division Bench comprising Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and K K Sasidharan said Nalini could not seek premature release as a matter of right considering the nature of the offence committed by her.

‘Considering the nature of the offence, which involved meticulous planning and ruthless execution in taking away the life of a Former Prime Minister, she cannot seek premature release as a matter of right,’ the Bench said.

Though she had the right to seek consideration of her plea, Nalini could not seek early release as a matter of right as she had committed a crime ‘which was cunning in conception, meticulous in planning and ruthless in execution, taking away the life of the Former Prime Minister,’ the Bench added.
