Sanjay Dutt’s parole gets extended, yet again!

The parole of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, has been extended by one more month by the district authorities, sanctioning his request on the ground of his wife Manyata’s illness. Dutt, 53, convicted under the Arms Act for illegal possession of weapons, was supposed to return to Yerawada Jail on 21 February on the expiry of his month-long parole.

The divisional commissioner’s office here granted extension till 21 March to the actor, who is serving remainder of his five year sentence, after receiving a mandatory report from the Mumbai police. The authorities said that as per the rules, this would be the last parole leave for Dutt this year.

Dutt sought extension of his parole to be able to look after his ailing wife, who recently underwent a surgery in Mumbai. Last month, the Maharashtra government had extended Dutt’s parole by another 30 days on the ground of his wife’s illness.
