Among the most wanted criminals in Haryana are over 200 dreaded gangsters from Haryana jails, who went out on parole and never came back. In fact what they did was committed series of crimes. None other than the Director General of Police of Haryana Ranjiv Dalal has admitted it.
A proposal has been sent to amend the existing rules which allow parole. As per it, no parole would be allowed to hardcore criminals for the first five years. In eventuality of a death in a family, a police team would accompany the prisoner.
Sources say, a total of 244 convicts who were released on parole from various jails in the state have not surrendered after completion of their parole period till date.
Out of 244, 52 parole jumpers are from Ambala jail followed by 46 from Karnal, 39 from Hisar, 34 from Gurgaon, 19 from Sonipat, 14 from Bhiwani and 10 from Jind, 3 from Kurukshetra, 2 from Rewari, and one each from Yamunanagar, Kaithal, Narnaul and Faridabad jails.
