Veteran actor Sanjay Dutt, who has been out on parole since December 21, 2013, has given another 30 day parole by the court. Mr. Dutt has been out of jail to look-after his wife Maanyata, who is not well for last 2 months.
“The extension has been given to the actor after the police submitted a medical report of his wife Maanayata Dutt, who is not well and is under treatment. After this there will be no more extension,” Pune Divisional Commissioner Prabhakar Deshmukh confirmed.
Days after actor Mr. Dutt asked for a further extension on his parole citing his wife Maanayata’s illness, he had initially requested for a further one-month extension.
The 54-year-old came out on parole on December 21 last year. He was supposed to go back into Yerawada jail on January 21, 2014, but his parole was extended to February 21. He then asked for a further extension to be by his wife’s side. According to rules, a convict gets a maximum of 90-days parole, of which Sanjay Dutt has finished 60 days. There will be no more parole after completion of 90 days.
