Chennai: Nalini, the life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, was on Wednesday shifted from a jail here to the high security Vellore Prison where her husband and death row convict in the same case, Murugan, is lodged.

Nalini, who was shifted to the Puzhal prison here last year following her complaint of harassment by authorities, was moved back to the Vellore Prison this morning, police said.

Nalini was among the four convicts awarded death sentence in the former Prime Minister's assassination case but it was commuted to life. The other two death row convicts are Santhan and Perarivalan.
