High Court grants parole to Arun Gawli

Nagpur: The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court has granted parole to underworld don Arun Gawli. The Division Bench comprising of Justice S B Shukre and M J Jamadar provided relief to Gawli during a hearing held on Thursday.

Gawli had applied for parole on the ground of illness of his wife. His application for parole was rejected by Nagpur Divisional Commissioner on the ground of adverse police report. It was contended that Gawli is head of the gang and his release is likely to create law and order problem.

Taking into consideration that on earlier occasions when Gawli was released no such incident took place, court observed that such objection cannot be entertained and granted parole to the don-turned-politician.

Adv RM Daga and Adv Mir Nagman Ali appeared for the petitioner.
