The Delhi government has asked the HC who would foot the bill for parole escort by police.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has approached the Delhi High Court seeking direction on whether a prisoner on custody parole for several weeks or the government authorities need to bear the cost of the police contingent providing them security.The issue cropped up in a case in which two accused were granted custody parole for two weeks by a magisterial court with a direction that the applicants shall bear the cost of travel, food and other expenses of the guards.When the jail authorities filed an application seeking direction to the two undertrial prisoners – Rahul Gaur and his wife Navneet Kaur – the son and daughter-in-law of real estate company Gaursons Chairman, to pay Rs 10,64,055 towards the salary of the escort staff deputed during the period of custody parole, as demanded by the 3rd Battalion of Delhi Armed Police (DAP), the magisterial court directed them to pay the amount.However, the couple challenged the order before the sessions court, which overturned the decision, after which the state government approached the high court for relief.Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar issued notice on the plea by the authorities seeking the trial court record, examining its legality and setting aside the October 2021 order of the sessions court.Additional Public Prosecutor Amit Sahni, representing the state, sought direction the Gaur couple to pay Rs 10,64,055.He said the matter requires larger consideration as prayers for custody parole on behalf of undertrial prisoners are considered by district courts beyond the normal prescribed period of six hours, as per Delhi Prison Rules, 2018.He said there have been instances where custody parole has been granted for several weeks or months and the state exchequer is unnecessarily burdened with paying the salary of escort party/ staff deployed for such period with prisoners.
