The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked rape-murder convict Santosh Kumar Singh to file details about his education after it came to the court's notice that he had been pursuing a two-year LLM course since 2012.
Santosh's counsel told the court that his client had been pursuing Master's in Law and that his examinations were set to start from May 22.
Earlier also, he was granted parole to write the exams.
A trial court in Delhi had acquitted Santosh on December 3, 1999, but the High Court held him guilty of rape and murder on October 27, 2006, and awarded him the death sentence.
On October 6, 2010, the Supreme Court upheld his conviction but changed the death sentence to life imprisonment.
