New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh jail authorities on Monday opposed before a Delhi court underworld don Babloo Srivastava's plea for custody parole to help him recuperate following an eye operation, saying he was an internationally notorious criminal.

The reply filed by authorities of Bareilly district jail where Babloo is lodged at present to Additional Sessions Judge Shalinder Kaur said that the accused cannot be allowed to remain outside the prison for 10 days.

They also claimed that Babloo, the internationally notorious criminal, was being kept in a high security barrack, which is airy and has clean environment as required for his eye problem.

Babloo, whose original name is Om Prakash, had on May seven filed the application in the court seeking custodial parole as he was required to stay at a hygienic place outside the prison to recover after an operation in his left eye on April 30 in Lucknow. He was discharged from hospital on May three.

He had also submitted that he was ready to pay for all the expenses that may be incurred over taking him out of the prison and keeping him at a different place.

The jail authorities, submitted that the accused is to be taken to hospital again on May 27 and further the doctors had yet not decided the date for operation in his right eye.

The court after taking the reply of jail authorities of Bareilly prison where Babloo is lodged since June 11, 1999, adjourned the matter for May 29.

Babloo, extradited from Singapore in 1995, is accused of threatening businessman Sheetal Prasad Singh who had lodged the FIR against him and others with the Delhi police's Special Cell in 2003.

According to the police, the accused had allegedly put Singh, who was into the business of making high security registration plates since 2001, in fear of death and forced him to meet Babloo and another businessman Nitin Shah.

Babloo, along with his three associates Fazlu-ur Rehman, Pradeep Khurana and Jitender Singh, is facing trial for allegedly making threatening calls to Singh to extort Rs 25 lakh from him between March 2003 to April 2003.
