Mumbai: Bollywood Actor Sanjay Dutt left for Yerawada Jail in Pune on Saturday after Dutt’s request for an extension in his furlough was rejected.
Dutt said that he has been a law abiding citizen and that there is no favor for him because he is a celebrity. He urged the people to pray for his early release. Dutt had sought 14 days extension after exhausting the two weeks granted to him by jail officials.
The decision on his extension plea came after the Mumbai police submitted its report to the Yerwada prison authorities. Dutt is serving 42 months of his five year sentence from May 2013 for illegal possession of arms in a case related to the 1993 serial blasts.
So far, he has spent over 100 days out of jail between May 2013 to May 2014 either on furlough or parole.
