Parole can be granted on the ground to attend son’s engagement: Madras HC

‘Sometime one needs to expand certain expressions in law to give meaning to life of citizens’; said HC

Recently a parole has been granted by the the Madras High Court to a man to attend his son's engagement ceremony. The Court rejected the State's objection as state was stating that attending engagement ceremony was not one of the enlisted grounds to give parole. Justice N Seshasayee passed this order while he was deciding the petition moved by a man requesting parole for his father who was completing his punishment of one year imprisonment for an offence punishable under Section 7 and 13(2) r/w 13 (1) (d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act. 

However, The plea was being opposed by the government stating that as per the Prison Manual Rule 6, Parole could be granted only on few grounds and attending son's engagement was not one of those grounds.

Thecourt said in reply, "Life of law is not logic to experience and life itself is having full of emotions and sentiments. This Court seeks no reason why the father should not attend an engagement ceremony of his son and this is an opportunity for him to visit the family in his life”.

”Sometime one needs to expand certain expressions in law to give the meaning to life of citizens. Hence, rather than administrating law in terms of letter, this Court is inclined to give Parole to the petitioner's father," judge said and asked Superintendent Central Prisons that the parole must be granted.
