The Delhi High Court Wednesday asked the state government to give details about the “Badaun visits” undertaken by Vikas Yadav, one of the convicts in the Nitish Katara murder case, after objections were raised against his parole plea.

Nitish’s mother Neelam Katara had opposed the parole plea, stating that replies by Tihar officials, to RTI queries filed by her, had shown that Yadav had “visited” Badaun in Uttar Pradesh several times in the last few months to “appear before court” and each visit had kept him out of Tihar jail for two days, said Neelam.

Speaking before the bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul, Neelam pointed out that her son had been killed “when Yadav was out on parole in a different case” and said that she “did not want someone else” to “have to come before court 10 years later, saying my son or my brother was killed by them.” “If this is the way Tihar deals with convicts in serious crimes, then god help us all…,” she told the court.
