New Delhi, May 8
The apex court has ordered immediate release of all prisoners who were granted bail or parole last year to save inmates from contracting Covid.
A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said the prisoners released on bail in March last year by high-powered committees (HPCs) of states and UTs should be granted the same relief without reconsideration by the HPCs.
“Those inmates who were granted parole, pursuant to our earlier orders, should be again granted parole for a period of 90 days in order to tide over the pandemic,” the top court said. — TNS
