Katara case: HC grants two weeks parole to Sukhdev
Delhi High Court on Tuesday granted two weeks’ parole to Sukhdev Yadav, alias <g data-gr-id="9">Pehelwan</g>, serving a 25-year jail term without remission for the murder of Nitish Katara, and asked him to surrender “immediately” on expiry of the period.
Justice G P Mittal extended the interim relief to accused <g data-gr-id="11">Pehelwan</g> on the grounds that he had remained in jail for over 10 years and it would be “appropriate to grant him parole for two weeks” in order to prepare his appeal against the recent high court judgment. The court also asked him to furnish a bail bond of Rs 50,000 with one surety of the like amount, besides imposing several conditions on him. The court directed <g data-gr-id="12">Pehelwan</g> to provide a mobile number to Tihar jail superintendent before his release from the prison and asked him to visit the police station every day.
