Priyadarshini Mattoo case: Santosh Singh granted parole to write LLM exam
| Tuesday | 14th May, 2019
The Delhi High Court Tuesday granted three-week parole to Santosh Kumar Singh, who is serving life term for the 1996 rape and murder of law student Priyadarshini Mattoo, to write his LLM examination.
Justice Mukta Gupta granted the parole to Singh for appearing in final year examination of LLM (Master of Laws).
Singh, son of a former IPS officer, had challenged his conviction and death sentence awarded by the high court.
In October 2010, the Supreme Court had upheld Singh’s conviction, but commuted the death sentence to life imprisonment.
AdvertisingThe court said Singh’s examinations are scheduled to commence from May 24 and he be released from jail from May 21 after the Delhi government did not oppose his plea.
