Sanjay Dutt back home for 30 days

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt granted parole for the third time and he left Pune Yerawada jail for Mumbai to be by the side of his family. He was granted parole on the ground of his wife Manyata’s illness.

The actor’s release on parole drew controversies when Republican Party of India (RPI) activists on Saturday staged protests outside the Yerawada Jail in Pune against Dutt release from jail on parole.

His application was granted by the police commissioner and the additional director general of Prisons Meeran Borwankar confirmed Dutt’s release from jail.

On October 1st, he was granted furlough for one week which later extended to another one week on medical grounds. He returned to jail Oct 30.

In his parole application, Dutt referred that his wife Manyata was sick and will undergo surgery and he needs leave from jail to take care of his wife.

There has been a huge uproar among people for Sanjay Dutt’s second time release from jail and this time on the ground of wife Manyata Dutt’s illness but the doctor who examined Manyata confirmed the report that she is truly unwell and has been diagnosed with tumor in liver which needs to be operated. Manyata is also suspected with heart ailment.

"Manyata has a tumor in the liver. She had chest pain and has lost ten kilos in 15-20 days. We have advised her to undergo certain tests for heart ailment. Once the tests are done then we can decide whether surgery is required or not," Dr Ajay Chaughule told PTI.

Chaughule, a senior heart and cardio thoracic surgeon and heart and lung transplant surgeon at Global Hospital, said she had visited him a week ago and he has been prescribed her some medicines.

The doctor informed that Manyata had earlier gone to Lilavati hospital where she was advised to undergo angiography to determine the condition of her heart after which she decided to take a second opinion from Chaughule.

Home Minister of Maharashtra Mr R. R. Patil has asked for investigation on the case. He also said that the issue will be brought into state legislative assembly. However, his application was finally granted.

Sanjay Dutt is serving jail following his conviction in 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts. He has been found guilty of possessing illegal weapons.
