(2.) This Petition takes exception to the order dated 20th May, 2017 passed by the Deputy Inspector General of Prisons, Central Region, Aurangabad, thereby rejecting the request of the Petitioner to release him on furlough.
(3.) It is the case of the Petitioner herein that he applied for furlough, however, by the impugned order his application has been rejected.

Secondly, if the Petitioner is released on furlough there may be danger to the life of the family members of the informant and also the witnesses. Thirdly, as the appeal filed by the Petitioner challenging the conviction and sentence, is pending before the High Court, in view of the Notification dated 26th August, 2016 issued by the Home Department, State of Maharashtra, furlough cannot be granted.
