New Delhi: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt must be a happy man currently, as he has been granted a 14-day furlough by the Yerawada Jail authorities. The actor had applied for a leave application earlier this month.
The 55-year-old actor will be released reportedly in a day or two, once the prison formalities are complete. Dutt, who is serving his remaining 42 month prison term in connection with the illegal possession of arms in 1993 Mumbai blasts, has been out on parole on several occasions.
In December last year, when his wife Manyata Dutt had fallen ill, he was granted a month-long break to take care of his two kids, which even got extended due to his spouse's poor health conditions. He also got a 30 day furlough on grounds of his own bad health in October that year.
Due to frequent parole applications, the Bollywood actor had sparked a controversy, where authorities were questioned over granting him leave.
