New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Y S
Dadwal on Friday said police department had not recommended to
city government for granting parole to Manu Sharma, who landed
in controversy due to an alleged scuffle he and his friend had
in a bar while he was out.
"We did not recommend (parole)," Dadwal told reporters
He said the city government had sought its report on
Sharma, the convict in Jessica Lal murder case, and it had
submitted a report.
"It is routine that government asks police before
granting parole. Police sends its report. It is for the
government to take a decision based on that. We had submitted
the report when government asked us," he said.
A controversy erupted after Sharma, serving a life
sentence for the murder of model Lal, along with a friend
Sahil Dhingra was at LAP Lounge Bar on November 7 in violation
of his parole norms which prescribed him to be in Chandigarh.
The duo also allegedly entered into a scuffle there.
