He had filed a writ petition in the high against rejection of his parole leave by Divisional Commissioner

The high directed the Divisional Commissioner and Jail Superintendent of Central Prison, Nagpur, to release Gawli latest by afternoon on October 21 and ordered Gawli to surrender before on November 2.

Advocate Anil Mardikar and advocate Mir Nagman Ali appeared for Gawli, while advocate Nitin Rode appeared for the respondent (Divisional Commissioner).
