India murder case actress walks free

Ruling over murder of Indian TV executive Neeraj Grover has angered his family and friends.



    An Indian actress has been released from prison a day after she received a three-year prison sentence.

    Maria Susairaj was convicted in connection with the killing of TV executive Neeraj Grover.

    He was killed by her boyfriend in 2008, but a judge ruled Susairaj had already spent three years behind bars as she awaited sentencing.
