Chennai [India], Mar 1 (ANI): The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court granted a two-week parole to convict Ravichandran, in connection with the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated in 1991.
Ravichandran, a native of Arupukottai in Virudhunagar district in Tamil Nadu had requested the police to release him on parole to help his aged mother to solve property issues, as she was finding it difficult to manage by herself.
However, the police raised an objection to release his parole citing difficulty in providing security to him.
As the convict owns a property in Thoothukudi district in Tamil Nadu, the police added that it would be difficult for the police to provide security in two places if he happens to visit Thoothukudi to see the property from Arupukkottai.
Besides Ravichandran, other convicts such as Robert Piaz, Nalini and Jayakumar are undergoing life terms in the case. (ANI)
