Actor Sanjay Dutt, who has been serving the remainder of his five-year term in Yerwada jail, Pune, will finish his term on February 25.
Reports said that contrary to the various dates of his release doing the rounds, the actor will be released in the early hours of February 25.
The actor has served for more than the 50 months out of the 60 month’s sentence that was announced by the government. A regular remission was granted to Sanjay Dutt by the authorities on account of his good conduct.
The actor has been given a clean chit by the Maharashtra government. Dutt had reached jail two days late while he was on parole but an inquiry concluded that this was due to lapses on part of the jail administration to take a decision. Dutt will not be penalised for arriving late at the jail.
It was reported that he will be given remittance as per the jail manual after due clearance from the home department. Minister for State (Home) Ranjit Patil signed the file allowing Dutt’s release, without penalising him for reporting late from his furlough in January 2015.
