Sanjay Dutt all set to walk free from prison


In a major relief to the actor, his family and his fans, the 56-year-old Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will be freed from the Yerawada Central Jail in Pune by the end of February. “Based on the remission that he is entitled to, he will be released in February. The exact date will be decided by the jail authorities,” said Sanjay’s lawyer.

Following his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case in May 2013, Sanjay Dutt has been serving the remaining 42 months of his 5-year jail term. Even though Sanjay’s actual release date is in November, jail authorities considered the remission of seven days per month the actor is entitled to, which facilitated his early release.
