Nagpur/UNI: The Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court on Friday extended convicted gangster Arun Gawli's parole by five days.

A division bench of Justice S B Shukre and A S Kilor directed Gawli to seek permission from the concerned police authorities to travel from Mumbai to Nagpur amid the COVID-19 lockdown and surrender before the Nagpur Central prison.

Gawli's advocate Mir Nagman Ali apprised the court that as per an order passed by another bench of the HC last week, he had appeared before the authorities at Taloja Prison in Navi Mumbai to surrender.

However, the jail authorities had refused to admit him in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Advocate said.

After hearing Gawli's application seeking more time to surrender, the court said one last opportunity should be given to the applicant and Gawli was granted another five days parole.
