Salem, in his application, said he has been in jail for 12 years, 3 months and 14 days, and has never been out on any leave, reported Hindustan Times. The letter was sent to the divisional commissioner of Konkan division on 27 March with his background.

They sent the letter and their report on it to the Thane Police Commissionerate on 5, 11 and 16 April after verification of details. The letter then reached the Mumbra police station for further scrutiny, the Hindustan Times report added.

In his parole application, Salem had stated that he will stay at Heena's home in Mumbai during the leave period, The Financial Express reported. The two guarantors mentioned in the parole application were Mohammad Salim Abdul Razak Memon and Mohammad Rafique Sayyed, who said that they are Salem's cousins, the report added.

The police said it was not the first time that Salem had tried to get permission to marry the woman and had made many applications in the TADA court pleading that he be escorted to the registrar of marriages office in Mumbai, according to The Times of India.
