As Sanjay Dutt's furlough came to an end, the star made arrangements for a smooth ride back to the Yerwada jail in Pune, where he has remained behind the bars since almost six months

Dutt had come home to avail medical assistance a month ago and was to ride a chopper back to the jail premises.

However, Dutt’s plans were doused with cold water after the chopper developed some technical snags, forcing him to make the trip to Pune by road. Says a source, “Dutt was to take a private chopper back. After leaving home around 6.40 am, he went straight to Kalina to take the helicopter out of the city. However, after some technical issues cropped up, the actor had to go by car.

 Dutt’s friends and family remained by his side through the night before his departure.” There was also buzz about the actor having made a quick trip to the Siddhivinayak temple in the early hours before he left. Dutt was still complaining about the pain in his leg after he exited his home.
