Sanjay Dutt served beer, rum in jail

Trouble seems to be never ending in Sanjay Dutt’s life. He is in jail and still he has been targeting. Senior BJP leader Vinod Tawde questioned on the law and order of the state and alleged that Sanjay Dutt who is serving jail in Pune, Yerawada jail is served beer and rum inside the jail . He said that some police officers are helping him out to get those materials.

Additional director general (prisons) Meeran Chadha Borwankar said on Saturday that an inquiry will be conducted to verify if rum and beer being served to Dutt in jail. When contacted, Borwankar said, "I do not agree (with the allegation). However, if there is any proof, we can definitely get an inquiry conducted."

Speaking about the present, Sanjay has been granted 30 days parole for his wife Manyata's illness. His application has been accepted but when he will be released from jail is not yet decided.

"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," said Pune Divisional Commissioner Prabhakar Deshmukh.

"Dutt has not yet fulfilled the parole conditions. He has a month's time to do the same," Yerawada jail superintendent Yogesh Desai told TOI on Saturday.

Referring to Tawade's statement, Desai said, "These are baseless and unfounded claims. The jail administration has received no complaint from any individual regarding the allegation."

"On the contrary, the Mumbai TADA court, which tried the serial blasts case, had initially allowed Dutt the facility of home food and a fan. We had challenged the court's directive on the grounds that a convict is not allowed to avail of such facilities and that the court had no powers to issue such directive to the prison authorities," Desai added.

Sanjay Dutt is locked in Pune Yerawada jail. He has been found guilty of possessing illegal arms and weapons during 1993 Mumbai bomb blast which killed many people and injured several others. This is the third time in a row, Dutt has been granted parole.
