Nagpur: Parole is an integral part of the correctional process. It is a kind of consideration granted to the prisoners to help them to come back into the mainstream of life. However, in recent times, the concept has seen a wide shift with parole been utilized by the rich and influential class or criminals to escape the prison sentence. Many criminals can be seen enjoying the intermittent bliss of free life, even after committing heinous offences and conviction.
In a recent incident which has come to fore, the mastermind identified as Tushar Dalal involved in the murder of goon-turned-realtor Jeetendra Gawande at Seven Hill Liquor Bar at Sakkardara was given a parole (Sankshipt Raja) of 15 days. The shrewd accused who had an ulterior aim of escaping, gave the address of his residence and that of his bail guarantor as Khaparkheda instead of Dattatrey Nagar in Sakkardara where he used to live. He was granted parole from July 26, 2015 to August 11, 2015. He was supposed to surrender himself on August 11, 2015 in the court of JFMC. However, the accused is absconding till date.
When the accused Tushar Dalal did not surrender in the court, the Nagpur Central Jail authorities registered a case with Khaparkheda Police Station though a Police Constable from Central Jail identified as Pankaj Raut aged 28 years. The Khaparkheda Police Station has registered an offence Crime No 3064/15 under section 224 of Indian Penal Code.
Police Inspector Tete of Khaperkheda Police Station, while speaking to Nagpur Today confirmed that the accused is absconding and that they are on the look-out for him.
Superintendent of Police, Nagpur Central Jail Yogesh Desai while speaking to Nagpur Today confirmed that the accused Tushar Dalal is absconding and the Khaparkheda Police and the Sakkardara Police is on the look-out for the accused.
It could be mentioned that Sakkardara Police had arrested five assailants for their alleged involvement in the murder of goon-turned-realtor who was also in the business of private money lending. The murder had occurred at Seven Hill Liquor Bar at Sakkardara.
Police had claimed that accused Bhuwesh Tichkule and Amol Mandale were arrested following information collected from mastermind Tushar Dalal and his accomplice Kunal Maske who were taken into custody. Police got the remand of Dalal and Maske till January 17 producing them before the court. Later Sakkardara police arrested another culprit in the case Laxmikant Paye who was booked for attempt to murder last year.
The assailants eliminated Gawande (who was an accused in several offences), in a dramatic manner over a monetary dispute. Preliminary investigation suggested that Dalal was being harassed and threatened by Gawande for repayment of the interest on a loan of Rs 50,000 that the assailant had borrowed from him. Dalal claimed before the police that Gawande was harassing him despite him having repaid the loan with interest. Police feel there could be some other reasons too behind the murder. The murder was caught by security camera of the bar.
