Manu Sharma, son of former union minister Vinod Sharma, was serving a life sentence for shooting model Jessica Lal. Jessica had refused to serve him a drink at the Tamarind Court restaurant owned by socialite Bina Ramani at Qutub Colonnade in south Delhi’s Mehrauli area on the night of April 30, 1999.

Manu Sharma was sentenced by the Delhi High Court in December 2006 for killing Jessica Lal in 1999. His life sentence was to end in 2023.
