Sanjay Dutt Granted 14 Days Furlough On Medical Grounds

Sanjay Dutt, who was sentenced to jail for his role in the 1993 bomb blast case, has been granted 14 days furlough by the Yerawada Jail officials for medical reasons. Dutt has already left the jail premises and is on his way to Mumbai.

In mid-August the 53-year-old had applied for parole for his treatment and on Tuesday, he was granted a two-week furlough by the jail officials. While a parole is granted by the court, a furlough is leave of absence from prison granted by the jail authorities. Reportedly, the actor is out of the prison for the treatment of his leg. Sanjay has stated, "I respect the law and courts of India. I will complete my parole and will report back in jail."

Dutt was convicted by the Supreme Court under the Arms Act for possessing illegal weapons and was sentenced to 42-months in jail.
