New Delhi: Jessica Lal murder convict Manu Sharma, who was reportedly involved in a brawl at a night club during parole, has surrendered to the police and returned to Tihar Jail, two weeks before his parole expires.
Manu had been granted a 30-day parole starting from September 22 on humanitarian grounds in view of his mother's illness. The parole was later extended by another thirty days to November 22. But last weekend, Manu was reportedly seen partying at actor Arjun Rampal's club, LAP.
"I was very close to Jessica Lal and I don't want the guy who murdered her in my club," Rampal said to NDTV.
Manu Sharma's parole was granted on grounds that his mother Shakti Rani Sharma was keeping unwell and that his business was suffering.
But Sharma's mother was seen at a media briefing on Saturday at the family-run hotel in Chandigarh, the Piccadilly Hotel. Rani is the general secretary of the Chandigarh Women's Cricket Association.
