Nagpur: The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court on Wednesday granted furlough to underworld don Arun Gawli who is serving life imprisonment at the Nagpur Central Prison for the murder of Shiv Sena Corporator Kamlakar Jamsandekar. The furlough has been granted for 21 days.
Gawli had since past few months sought furlough from prison authorities. However, the jail authorities had spurned the don’s application. Subsequently, Gawli had moved to the High Court and filed a petition for a furlough. During the hearing, the High Court observed that evry prisoner has right to furlough for 14 days twice in a year and granted Gawli furlough (leave) for 21 days. The court ordered the prison authorities to release him within two weeks. Earlier also, the High Court had granted Gawli 30-day parole in May 2015 for his son’s marriage.
Gawli, who is serving life imprisonment at the Nagpur Central Prison for the murder of Shiv Sena Corporator Kamlakar Jamsandekar, was arrested on May 20, 2008.
