New Delhi: Jessica Lal Murder case convict Manu Sharma on Tuesday was released from Tihar jail after Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal approved his premature release.

Sharma and 17 other prisoners were freed from jail following a recommendation by the Delhi Sentence Review Board.

The son of former union minister Vinod Sharma, Manu Sharma was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court in December 2006 for shooting model Jessica Lal after she refused to serve him a drink on April 30, 1999, at a party in Tamarind Court restaurant in Delhi owned by socialite Bina Ramani.

A trial court had acquitted him, but the high court reversed the order and the Supreme Court later upheld his life sentence in April 2010.
