New Delhi, Nov 10: Businessman Manu Sharma, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of model Jessica Lal, on Tuesday, Nov 10, surrendered before the Delhi Police, even as his parole was due to end on Nov 22.
The Delhi government has asked the police to conduct a thorough investigation on whether he violated the parole norms by moving out of Chandigarh and paying a visit here.
According to a top Delhi government official, as per the parole norms, Sharma should not have been present in Delhi as he was given parole under the condition that he will visit Chandigarh to meet his "ailing" mother.
"We have sought a detailed report from Delhi Police about whether Sharma visited the city," the official said.
When asked whether government also wants to know if he visited night clubs in this city, the official said it is immaterial for the government as the parole condition restricts him from coming to Delhi.
Sharma is serving life sentence at Tihar jail for killing Lal on Apr 29, 1999 at the Tamarind Court Bar owned by socialite Bina Ramani.
Sharma had sought release from jail citing the ill health of his mother Shaktirani Sharma and he was allegedly seen in a nightclub.
