MADURAI: The HC Bench sought replies from the Home Secretary and Additional Director General of Prisons on a Habeas Corpus petition, seeking long parole or leave for Rajiv Gandhi assassination convict Ravichandran.

Ravi has been in prison ever since. As there has been no decision on her representation to the government for her son’s parole, Rajeswari approached the court praying for the direction to grant a long parole or ordinary leave to her son until the Governor’s decision was made.
