The Maharashtra State Government on Thursday has said that they are ready to send Sanjay Dutt back to jail if the court wants it to do so.  

The Bombay High Court has asked Attorney General AA Kumbhakoni to file more details on actor Sanjay Dutt’s early release.

The Court has found discrepancies in the affidavit filed by the state government in Sanjay Dutt’s early release clause.

The High Court has questioned how Sanjay Dutt was granted parole and furlough at the same time. The Court has also asked the state to give details about the actor’s behaviour based on which he was released earlier. 

“The Bombay High Court has also given two weeks notice to the state government to explain the order of events regarding the leaves granted to Sanjay Dutt. They have also asked the government to explain the criteria behind confirming his good conduct.”

The High Court bench also questioned the state’s decision to grant frequent paroles and furloughs to the actor while he was serving his sentence in Yerwada Central Jail in Pune. 

It was also noted by the bench that Dutt was granted parole just two months into his sentence and also furloughs were granted ‘concurrently’ — a practice which is rarely followed for regular convicts.  

The affidavit submitted by the State government justified that Sanjay Dutt was given benefits like parole and remission which was based on his good behaviour.
