Pune: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who is currently lodged in Yerawada jail in Pune in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case, is all set to walk out of the jail once again after being granted parole for 30 days over medical grounds.
Dutt has been sanctioned 30-day-long parole after he claimed that his wife Manyata Dutt is ill. But interestingly Manyata, whom the actor claimed to be ill was seen at a movie screening on Thursday.
"He has been granted one-month parole on the recommendation made by the prison officials. The date of his release on parole will be decided by them after completing the formalities," Deshmukh said.
Deputy Inspector General of Prisons R Dhamne, however, said the jail authorities were yet to receive the order of parole sanction from the office of the Divisional Commissioner.
Dutt could be released on Saturday if the order was received with completion of subsequent formalities, prison sources said.
Earlier, the actor had availed of 15 days leave of furlough, extending it further by another fortnight in October on medical grounds.
