Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was on parole since 21 December last year, will return back to Yerawada Jail today (March 21).
He was granted bail on the grounds of his wife Manyata’s illness. His parole was extended by a month, till 21st February and then again till 21st of March.
According to reports, Maanyata Dutt has diagnosed with a tumour in the liver. Worried Sanjay had applied for third parole to look-after his wife.
The veteran actor is serving the remaining 42 months of his sentence. He was convicted for illegal possession of arms in a case related to 1993 serial blasts. The incident killed over 250 people among hundreds injured.
In early 2013, the Supreme Court upheld his conviction and awarded five-year prison term. He has already served 18 months of his jail term. The actor was shifted to Pune’s Yerwada Central Jail in May last year, nearly a week after he surrendered before a Special Court here.
In the past, Sanjay Dutt faced several protests outside his home and jail for his parole requests.
