Sanjay Dutt to be released from jail in February

Mumbai: Sanjay Dutt will be out of the Yerwada Jail in Pune in the last week of February.

The Bollywood actor, who was convicted by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of arms in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, will walk out a free man.

Based on his conduct, the Jail authorities have decided to cut his punishment period and release him before the scheduled release date, reports suggest.

The Apex Court had convicted Dutt under the Arms Act for possessing weapons in 2013 and sentenced him to six years in jail. He had spent about 18 months behind bars earlier and is now serving his remaining 42-month jail term. He has been out on parole and furlough a few times since May 2013.
