Sanjay Dutt has been granted a 14-day leave from Pune's Yerwada jail
The actor's lawyer Hitesh Jain said, "He has been sanctioned a 14-day furlough and should be in Mumbai on afternoon of December 24."
So, will the actor be applying for extension? Jain said they will think about it later.
The last time Sanjay came out of prison was in December last year when he was granted a month-long parole. It was extended by 30 days in January on account of his wife Manyata's illness. Prior to that, he was on a month-long leave of furlough on medical grounds — in October 2013. His prolonged stay out of prison had triggered a controversy, forcing the government to order an inquiry.
The actor is amidst serving a 42-month sentence at Pune's Yerwada jail after he was convicted for illegal possession of weapons in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
