Manu Sharma, killer of ramp model Jessica Lall may get parole. The Delhi High Court reserved its order on the matter yesterday. The court said it will pronounce its order on Wednesday. Sharma may be allowed parole to attend his brother's marriage on an undertaking that he would not leave Karnal and Ambala, where two key ceremonies are slated to be held, the city police told the court on Monday.
Change of mind
The police, which had been opposing his plea, took a U-turn before a single-judge Bench of Justice VK Shali Sharma. Justice Shali reserved his order on Sharma's plea after hearing arguments.
In an affidavit submitted to the court last week, the police had objected to Sharma's plea for parole, saying his past conduct does not entitle him to it as he was found indulging in brawl in a discotheque, when out on parole to visit his ailing mother in Chandigarh and to attend the last rites of his grandmother.
