The Maharashtra Prisons Department has submitted a report to the State Home Ministry recommending action against Yerawada jail superintendent and another senior jailer in connection with the “illegal” visit of Bollywood director Rajkumar Hirani to meet Sanjay Dutt.
Yerawada prison’s internal inquiry into the visit of Hirani to meet Dutt before the staging of a cultural programme that was later cancelled, had found that the jail department officials flouted the rules.
The report submitted by the vigilance department had found that jail superintendent Yogesh Desai and senior jailer Chandrakant Awale, who were also seen with Dutt and Hirani in a photo that appeared in media the next day, had flouted prison rules. The report was submitted to Additional Director General (Prisons) Meeran Borwankar, who has now written to the Home Ministry recommending action against the two, a senior jail department officer confirmed.
