Veteran actor Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanyata was suffering from multiple heart and liver ailments so the actor has sought further extension of his parole to nurse his wife, police said.
Mr. Dutt, currently out on parole since December 21, 2013, was due to return to jail January 21, but he sought and was given extension of another month (till February 21) in his parole.
Now, he has applied for another month-long extension.
Mr. Dutt has written to the Pune divisional commissioner, who has directed the Khar Police in Mumbai to verify the reasons for parole extension cited in the application, a police official said. The verification report is expected in the next few days.
Mr. Dutt is serving the remaining 42 months of his five year prison sentence.
A few months ago, actor’s wife Maanyata was diagnosed as suffering from multiple heart and liver ailments. She was admitted to Global Hospital, Parel last month and underwent surgery.
