Nashik (Maharashtra): Pravin Mahajan, sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his brother, the late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, was Friday released on parole for 14 days on medical grounds, a family member said.

"He has been released a short while ago on some purely personal medical reasons," the family member said.

Pravin was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Mumbai court in December 2007 for shooting his elder brother Pramod at his home in Worli April 22, 2006.

Pramod succumbed to his bullet injuries 12 days later in a city hospital.

Pravin has been lodged at the Nashik Central Jail here following the life imprisonment sentence.
