Gangster Arun Gawli who is currently lodged in the Nagpur central jail has been granted furlough for a period of 28 days.
Gawli’s application was rejected on the ground that his release may create breach of peace and he had criminal antecedents. It was also contended that since general elections were going on and therefore he should not be released on furlough.
It was submitted on behalf of Gawli that whenever he was released on parole or furlough earlier there was no misuse of liberty and he had surrendered on due date.
Adv Rajendra daga and adv Mir Nagman Ali appeared for Arun Gawli.
Gawli is serving a life sentence for the 2007 murder of Shiv Sena corporator Kamalakar Jamsandekar. Gawli and 11 others were convicted in 2012 for the offence, and it was the first conviction against Gawli, who has had a long list of criminal cases against him.
