Actor Sanjay Dutt granted month-long parole

Convicted actor Sanjay Dutt on Friday was granted a month-long furlough by Pune’s Yerawada jail authorities on grounds that his wife Maanyata has been keeping unwell and he needs to be near her.

Dutt has to complete the remaining 42-month term of his five year jail sentence awarded to him for procuring prohibited firearms.

Earlier, in October this year, the actor was granted a furlough for two weeks that was later extended for another two weeks.

Local media had reported that the actor’s wife had applied last week for a furlough as she has been not been  keeping well and though the police had earlier declined the request, it was given a  green signal by Pune's Divisional Commissioner on Friday.

Last time, the actor was granted furlough on medical ground because he had cited medical reports of prison doctors stating that there were blood clots in his legs.
