Abu Salem’s plea for parole to marry rejected by Bombay HC

The Bombay High Court on August 7th, 2018 has rejected the jailed gangster Abu Salem’s plea for a 45-day parole to get married to his Thane-based girlfriend.

A division bench comprising of Acting Chief Justice V.K. Tahilramani and Justice M.S. Sonak rejected the request on the ground that under the prison rules, those convicted under terror charges were not eligible either for furlough or parole.

Abu Salem has earlier filed an application for parole to Konkan Divisional Commissioner (KDC) which got rejected due to security reasons.

Through his lawyer Farhana Shah, he informed the High Court on Tuesday that the KDC had refused his application "without proper application of the mind" for his previously planned marriage on May 5.

The gangster is currently lodged in the Taloja Jail, Raigad, being convicted for his role in the March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

As per reports, Salem has claimed to have married Henna alias Kausar Bahar in 2014 over the phone while en route to Lucknow for a court case. Now he wanted to properly formalize his marriage with Heena by going to the registrar's office and needed parole for this.
