Sanjay Dutt to be freed from jail in March
Pune, (IANS): Incarcerated Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, whose five-year sentence for his involvement in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts was confirmed by the Supreme Court in March 2013, will be freed from prison by March 7, 2016, official sources said here on Tuesday.


The sources indicated that barring last-minute glitches, Sanjay would be released by March 7 after completing the remaining 42-month period of his sentence.

Dutt was acquitted of terror charges under the TADA, but found guilty of possessing illegal arms, acquired ostensibly to protect his family during the communal conflagration that engulfed Mumbai after the demolition of the Babri Mosque on December 6, 1992.

Following the apex court orders, his bail was cancelled and he was ordered to surrender within four weeks, which he complied with on May 16, 2013 and was lodged in Arthur Road Central Jail.

A week later, he was shifted to the Yeravada Central Jail, Pune, where he has been lodged since then and has earned the reputation of being a well-behaved inmate.

Of the five-year sentence, the actor had already served 18 months as an undertrial and was required to undergo another 42 months, which is now on the verge of completing.

In between serving time, Dutt was granted either parole or furlough on various grounds, attracting a lot of criticism from various quarters, while some prominent personalities demanded his release from jail.


  1. Finally after much suffering, he can breath fresh air of freedom. He had suffered so much agony while going through imprisonment with sickness at his home.

  2. Watch out – Bakra Dutt will be the first one to interview him and treat him like some POW who got released from an enemy prison!!! And, India, a third-world nation with suicidal mindset, will nicely reward him by consuming his new movies and tv-shows in the coming days!! You can see AS Beef Mathew apologizing for what he had to go thru in prison!! I wonder if India would be even exist 100 years from now!!

    • Original R.Pai – ” I wonder if India would be even exist 100 years from now!!”


  3. Sanjay, I have good news for you, and perhaps you go home much earlier.

    We have a sympathiser or let’s call him “Simon of Cyrene” who feels that you have gone through “so much suffering and agony”, that he may even want to take your place till March 7, 2016 while you could even go home and celebrate the New Year – Happy New Year Sanjay !!!!!
