The court also directed that Sharma will not leave the National Capital Territory of Delhi for the duration of the parole, which shall be effective from the date of his release.
The other terms and conditions of the parole include keeping away from the area around the residence of the deceased and her family members, the court said in its order which was made available today after it was reserved on Monday.
Sharma's exams are scheduled to commence from June 19 and will end on June 24. He is pursuing the course from Indian Institute of Human Rights here which is recognised by United Nations.
Senior advocate S Nandrajog and advocate Arpit Batra, appearing on behalf of Sharma, had submitted before the court that their client's conduct has always been good while in prison and the same has been appreciated by the jail superintendents concerned.
They also claimed that Sharma through his NGO, Siddharth Vashisht Charitable Trust, has done work towards the education of the children of jailed inmates and his efforts have been appreciated by the Lt Governor.
After hearing Sharma's counsel as well as the fact that the sole opposition by Delhi Police to his parole was his unsatisfactory conduct back in 2009 when he was granted a similar relief, the court granted him parole for 15 days.
"In view of the aforesaid, the petitioner is granted parole for a period of 15 days on the condition that he shall take his second year examination for the course in question," the court said.
