Emerging from a three hour long meeting with his client Sanjay Dutt advocate Rizwan Merchant told media persons outside Arthur Road on Saturday that Dutt was comfortable with the prison arrangements.

"Anda cell or non anda cell, he is currently comfortable and has no complaints." Merchant declined to comment on the nature of the "legal meeting" he had with his client. Dutt is reportedly lodged in the infamous anda cell barracks.

"There are no plans to make any application to have him shifted. Whether or not to shift him is entirely at the discretion of the prison authorities. I cannot comment on that."

Saturday marks the second day of Dutt’s slated three and a half year long incarceration.

At about 5.45 pm, MP Priya Dutt accompanied by the incarcerated star Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanyata, visited him in jail. They were accompanied by his lawyer, Rizwan Merchant. The visit lasted about an hour and the trio made a hasty exit in their silver xuv5OO.
