Former Dholpur MLA B L Kushwaha, who is undergoing life term in the district jail in connection with a 2012 murder case, was today released on parole for five days.
He was expelled from the BSP after the District and Session Court found him guilty of murdering student leader Naresh Kushwah in December 2012.
"Kushwaha in the parole application had said his mother was ill, based on which he has been released from the prison for five days," Dholpur Jail Superintendent Ashok Kumar Verma told PTI.
He will return to the jail on February 16.
