Manu Sharma moves court for three weeks' furlough

New Delhi, Sep 7, 2012, (IANS)

Manu Sharma, serving a life term for killing model Jessica Lall, Friday moved the Delhi High Court for three weeks furlough.

Hearing the plea, Justice V. K. Shali has issued notice to Delhi government and sought a reply from director general (prisons) on deciding Sharma's application for furlough in accordance with the government's parole guidelines.

The court has fixed Sep 17 for further hearing. Sharma has sought directions from the court to the Tihar Jail authorities to decide his plea for three weeks' furlough which has been pending for several months.

Lall was shot dead by Manu Sharma April 1999 after she refused to serve him a drink at a late night party at socialite Bina Ramani's restaurant Tamarind Court in south Delhi.


Sharma was awarded life imprisonment by the high court in December 2006. The Supreme Court upheld this last year.
