Murder convict gets furlough, victim’s kin move Supreme Court | India News



NEW DELHI: The release of a double murder convict, who once even escaped from Tihar jail and stands sentenced to life term with a 30-year cap on remission, has left the kin of the victims terrified, reports Abhinav Garg. Jitender, the convict, is now on furlough even while serving a sentence of rigorous imprisonment for life for two murders on the same day.
On March 10, 1999, Jitender stormed into a wedding reception in north Delhi and shot dead Anil Bhadana, the then president of Satyawati College Students’ Union, because Bhadana was about to depose against him in a pending criminal case. The same night, he went to the house of Sumit Nayyar, an eyewitness who had informed police about Bhadana’s murder, and pumped three bullets into the chest of Nayyar’s father as he opened the main door, killing him on the spot.
Alleging that the convict hid facts from the court, the panic-stricken family of the victim has approached the Supreme Court, urging it to put him back in jail to serve the remainder of his sentence and cancel his furlough. The plea is likely to be heard on Monday.
