Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) militant Devinderpal Singh Bhullar, convicted in the 1993 bomb blast in Delhi, got 21-day parole on Friday. This is the second parole Bhullar got in three months. He had got 21-day parole on April 23 as well.

Additional deputy commissioner (ADC) TP Sandhu said, “Bhullar has been given 21-day parole after he requested that he wanted to meet his family.”

Bhullar was shifted to the Amritsar central jail from Delhi’s Tihar jail in June last year. Soon after, he was admitted to the psychiatry ward of the local Guru Nanak Hospital and has been receiving treatment for depression since then. Before being shifted to Amritsar, Bhullar was admitted to the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences in New Delhi as he was suffering from depression.

He was convicted in connection with the killing of nine people in a bomb blast in 1993 in Delhi.
