Sanjay Dutt leaves Pune’s Yerawada Jail, headed for Mumbai home for 30 days

Pune/Mumbai, Dec.21: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is on his way to Mumbai after leaving Pune’s Yerawada Jail. He left the prison at 10 a.m.

Dutt has been granted parole for a month after he filed an application citing his wife Maanyata’s illness.

Maanyata, however, was seen at two separate events at the same time and the news of Sanjay Dutt being granted yet another parole stirred controversy and invited protests from activists.

A doctor, who examined her, later certified that Maanyata has been diagnosed with a tumour in the liver and a suspected heart ailment.

Dutt spent the whole of Oct er on leave at home in Mumbai. He was granted two weeks leave on medical grounds on Oct er 1 and an extension of another two weeks on Oct er 14.

Dutt had surrendered before a TADA court in Mumbai in May after the Supreme Court delivered a final verdict on the Bollywood actor’s part in the bomb blasts that ripped Mumbai apart in 1993.

Dutt was sentenced to six years in jail in 2007, and had his sentence reduced by a year.

He had already served 18 months of his sentence and was sent to prison to serve the remaining 42 months left of the five-year jail term he was handed by the Supreme Court. (ANI)
