New Delhi: Ramp model Jessica Lall's killer Manu Sharma may be allowed parole to attend his brother's marriage on an undertaking that he would not leave Karnal and Ambala, where two key ceremonies are slated to be held, the city police told the Delhi High Court on Monday.
The police, which had been opposing his plea, took a U-turn before a single-judge bench of Justice V K Shali Sharma.
Justice Shali reserved his order on Sharma's plea after hearing arguments.
Delhi Government's Standing Counsel (Criminal) Pawan Sharma told Justice Shali that the police will have no objection to the grant of parole to Sharma, if he gives an undertaking to the court that he will not leave Karnal and Ambala where the marriage ceremony and the reception is slated respectively on November 22 and November 24.
In an affidavit submitted to the court last week, the police had objected to Sharma's plea for parole, saying his past conduct does not entitle him to it as he was found indulging in brawl in a discotheque, when out on parole to visit his ailing mother in Chandigarh and to attend the last rites of his grandmother.
Earlier appearing for Sharma, the son of an influential Congress leader Venod Sharma, senior counsel Ram Jethmalani sought parole for him asserting that visiting discotheque,
when out on parole, is not illegal and not a crime.
