Shravan Somnath vs State Of Gujarat &

High Court Of Gujarat|20 September, 2013
1. RULE.
Ms. Jirga Jhaveri, learned APP waives service of rule for respondent No.1-State.
2. The jail record shows that there is nothing serious against the present petitioner inasmuch as he has never prayed for temporary bail or parole except in the year 2005 though he is under prison for last more than 14(fourteen) years. He has been released regularly on furlough and every time, he surrendered in time. Therefore, there is nothing against the petitioner so as to refuse his request for parole leave. However, he cannot be granted parole leave for unlimited period, as prayed for.
3. Therefore, the Jail Authority may release the petitioner on parole leave for a period of 15(fifteen) days on usual conditions with additional condition that the petitioner shall mark his presence on every 3rd day before the nearest police station. For the purpose, before getting released, the petitioner has to disclose complete address of his stay during parole leave. Based upon such address, the Jail Authority shall convey nearest police station to record presence of the petitioner.
4. In view of above, petition is partly allowed. Rule is made absolute to that extent.
