been convicted under section 377 of IPC for committing

4. Learned APP placed reliance on the notification

dated 01/12/2015 which states that prisoners who have been

convicted under Sections 376 or 377 of IPC shall not be eligible

to be released on furlough. Thereafter reliance is placed on the

notification dated 26/08/2016 wherein it is stated that under

Rule 19, all the prisoners eligible for furlough shall be eligible

for regular parole. Learned APP submitted that in view of the

notification dated 01/12/2015, the petitioner would not have

eligible to be released on parole. In view of these notifications,

no error can be found in the orders of the Authority dated

13/04/2017 and 30/06/2017. Thus, no case is made out for

interference. Rule is discharged.
