Indian court rejects parliament attack appeal
The High Court in Delhi has dismissed a petition by an Indian woman to set aside aside her five-year prison sentence for aiding militants who attacked the Indian parliament in December, 2001.

Navjot Sandhu was convicted for failing to alert police to the plot to attack parliament.

Three men who were sentenced to death in the same case are also appealing against their convictions.
