In a surprise move, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was secretly shifted from a Mumbai prison to a Pune jail early Wednesday, official sources said.

The actor was taken from the high-security Arthur Road Central Jail in south Mumbai in a van around midnight and delivered to the Yerawada Central Jail in Pune early Wednesday.

The shifting took place exactly a week after Dutt surrendered before the Special TADA Court on May 16 after his conviction under the arms act.

The incarcerated actor is expected to serve the remainder of his 42-month jail term at the Pune jail, the state's biggest in terms of capacity and among the largest in Asia.
