Sanjay Dutt

Actor Sanjay Dutt’s third parole in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case will end today. Dutt had been granted parole due to his wife Manyata’s illness. Sanjay Dutt has been out on parole since December 21 and from hereon he had been getting extensions on his parole on the grounds of his wife Manyata Dutt being sick. Dutt will today be returning to the Yerwada Jail, where he is serving his 42-month jail term.



According to sources, Manyata has reportedly been diagnosed with a tumour in the liver and a suspected heart ailment. She was undergoing treatment in a city hospital, so Dutt was granted parole to take care of her. The Bombay High Court had on February 25 pulled up Maharashtra Government for showing “extra diligence” to Dutt in the matter of granting him repeated paroles.

The actor had surrendered himself before the TADA court on May 16, 2013 and has been serving his remaining 42-month jail term after being convicted by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of arms in relation to the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
