Rajiv Gandhi assassination: Know why convict Nalini attempted suicide in prison

Nalini Sriharan, who was convicted for the assassination of former Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi, attempted suicide Monday night, said her lawyer.

Nalini has been lodged in prison for the last 29 years. She is lodged at the Vellore women’s prison.

Elaborating on the incident, her lawyer stated that there was a quarrel between Nalini and another life convict lodged at the prison.

The other person complained to the jailer about the tussle. Jailer conducted an enquiry with Nalini. It is said that Nalini was severely disturbed and attempted suicide.

“Some say that Nalini threatened to take the extreme step and someday. She’s endured much more torture and fought it legally. It is doubtful if she would resort to an extreme measure for such a reason. I have known her as a fighter who stands up for her rights, we need to understand if there is some other serious issue,” added her lawyer.

Nalini is serving life imprisonment in the case related to the Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination by an LTTE suicide bomber during an election rally at Sriperumpudur in 1991.
