Jessica Lall murder convict Manu Sharma released early

Jun 03, 2020 15:38 IST

Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal has approved the premature release of Jessica Lal murder convict Manu Sharma, who is serving a life sentence. The move comes after the Delhi Sentence Review Board, which comes under the Delhi government had recommended his premature release last month. Manu Sharma, son of former Union minister Venod Sharma, was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court in December 2006 for killing Jessica Lal in 1999. A trial court had acquitted him, but the high court reversed the order and the Supreme Court later upheld his life sentence in April 2010.
