The Jessica Lal murder convict Manu Sharma request for premature release is likely to be taken up at the next meeting of the Sentence Review Board (SRB).

Sharma had undergone 21 years one month and six days of imprisonment, including remission, and therefore, was eligible for premature release on the directions of Delhi high court .

Sharma, son of former Union Minister Venod Sharma, was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by the High Court in December, 2006 for killing Jessica Lal in 1999.

Lal was shot dead by Sharma after she had refused to serve him liquor at the Tamarind Court restaurant in south Delhi’s Mehrauli area on the night of April 30, 1999.The trial court had acquitted him, but the Delhi High Court had reversed the order and the Supreme Court had upheld his life sentence in April, 2010.
