Kannada actress Maria Susairaj, sentenced to three-year imprisonment in the 2008 murder of television executive Neeraj Grover, on Saturday walked free out of a jail in Mumbai as she has already spent the term behind the bars.
Clad in a floral brown kurta and black pants, the 30-year-old was escorted to a waiting car by a posse of policemen, as there was a huge media presence outside the Byculla Jail.
Accompanied by her brother, Maria stopped at Mahim church for 10 minutes to pray.
She will hold a press conference later in the evening. She wants to talk to the public, said her lawyer Sharif Shaikh. He also dismissed reports of her moving out of the city. “Maria is staying in Mumbai,” he said.
