Former minister Venod Sharma, a Congress politician, Manu Sharma's son was convicted of the 1999 murder of Jessica Lal in a pub. "I would like to state I have no objection to his release, owing to the fact that he has spent 15 years in jail".
Manu Sharma is now serving life imprisonment in Tihar jail for shoting dead Delhi-based model Jessica, who was serving as a celebrity bartender at the pub that night, when she refused him a drink. "I was very upset and hurt, and for many years, we [she and her parents] were quite angry", Sabrina Lall said, according to The Hindu. "You need to rest your mind and move on with your life", said Sabrina.

Sabrina wrote a letter to the welfare office of Central Jail, Tihar, where Sharma is behind bars serving time for murdering Jessica Lall. Sharma, the 41-year-old accused, was moved to an open jail nearly 3 months ago owing to his good conduct in prison. In response, she wrote that she didn't need any financial assistance and the money should be given to others. The 41-year-old sentenced to a life term is allowed to leave his quarters in Delhi's Tihar Jail every day for work and return in the evening. Last October, he was admitted to an open jail allegedly after reviewing his conduct and work, which included running an NGO that has helped in "education of 700 children of jail inmates" and "post-release rehabilitation of inmates". Over the years, jail superintendents gave him "special remission on 11 occasions". "I've been fighting for this since 1999".
However, legal experts say that forgiveness or no objection by the victims' family members is not a factor to be considered in commutation of a sentence.

A senior jail official said that though Sabrina can not decide Sharma's release, but her statements will help his case before the Sentencing Review Board (SRB). He said that a month he wasn't aware.
"When asked if she was ready to come face to face with Sharma, if he decides to meet her after release, Sabrina said", I don't think I have reached that situation yet".
