Actor Sanjay Dutt arrived at Yerawada Central Prison here at 4.55 pm on Saturday, as his parole ended on Friday.
Sanjay Dutt was released from Yerawada jail on a one-month parole on December 21 last year on the grounds of his wife Maanyata’s illness. The parole was later extended by a month, till February 21, 2014 and then again till March 21.
Sanjay Dutt had applied for parole extension saying he wanted to take care of his wife Maanyata, who had undergone surgery earlier.
According to reports, Maanyata has a tumour in the liver. The actor was earlier granted a 14-day furlough in the first week of October and had got a 14-day extension on medical grounds.
Activists of different groups have protested against the government over the grant of parole to Dutt. They alleged that Dutt was given ‘special treatment’ by the government. The 53-year-old actor is serving the remaining 42 months of his sentence for illegal possession of arms in a case related to the 1993 serial blasts, in which over 250 people were killed and several wounded. In early 2013, the Supreme Court had upheld his conviction. He has already served 18 months of his five-year jail term. The actor was shifted to Pune’s Yerawada Central Jail in May last year, nearly a week after he surrendered before a special court.
