Prisoner seeks parole to see his ailing mother in Mumbai
Mumbai: A prisoner serving life sentence in a murder case in Ratnagiri central jail, on Tuesday urged the Bombay High Court to release him on parole for a few days to see his ailing and bed-ridden mother.
The convict, Janardhan Baing, argued through his lawyer N N Gawankar that his mother was sick and was perhaps in her last days of life.
The lawyer urged the court to release the prisoner on parole so that he could be with her in the fag end of her life. He said the petitioner had been released on parole at least five to six times earlier and he had never misused the liberty granted to him and had always surrendered on time.
This time also, the prisoner said, he would abide by all the conditions imposed by the court if he was released on parole.
The convict had applied for release on parole to the Divisional Commissioner of Nagpur, who had rejected his plea. He then approached the Maharashtra Home Department, though no decision had been taken by the authorities.
Being aggrieved, he moved the high court bench headed by Justice S C Dharmadhikari, which would hear the matter tomorrow.
