Rajiv Gandhi assassination

Nalini Sriharan, the woman convicted for assassinating former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, says she's had enough and after over 18 years in prison, she deserves to be free.

Campaigning for her release from Vellore jail in Tamil Nadu, Nalini hit headlines on Monday, September 21, after she began an indefinite hunger strike. The protest ended two days later after jail authorities assured her that they would form an advisory board next month to consider her plea for premature release.

Nalini had accompanied the suicide bomber squad to the election rally where Rajiv Gandhi was killed in May 1991. Nalini, her husband and former Tamil Tiger guerrilla Murugan and two other rebels were sentenced to death for their role in the killing of Gandhi. (NDTV Photo)
