Sanjay Dutt Can Be Sent To Jail If Rules Were Flouted: Maharshtra Government Tells High Court
The state government maintained that if rules were flouted in giving parole or furlough to Sanjay Dutt, the government has no objection in sending him back to jail
The Maharashtra government on Thursday told Bombay High Court that Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who completed his term and was released in February 2016, can be sent back to jail if it's found that any rules were flouted in giving parole or furlough.
Questioning the state's justification of not giving special treatment to Sanjay Dutt, the court asked, "Within two months from his surrender on May 16, 2013, how could authorities allow his parole and furlough leave application concurrently.”
The Bombay High Court has given further two weeks time to the state government to explain its chronology of leave granted to Sanjay Dutt, and also for them to explain criteria behind ascertaining good conduct for granting remission in sentence.
