GN Saibaba, former professor at the University of Delhi, had tested positive for COVID-19 in February. AS Vasanthakumari, Saibaba’s wife, and his brother Gokarakonda Ramadevudu have written to the Maharashtra home minister demanding that he instruct jail authorities to provide at least two attendants to Saibaba, who is physically disabled and suffers from serious medical conditions, and allow him parole. Saibaba is lodged in solitary confinement in the Nagpur Central Jail.
The letter is reproduced below in full.
The Honourable Home Minister
State of Maharashtra
