He will now return to his cell October 29, sources said. On October 1, the incarcerated actor secured a 14-day parole from Yerwada Central Jail on medical grounds.
A parole is a conditional release granted to a prisoner for a limited period of time for a specific purpose and is strictly governed under the Indian jail laws.
“It does not imply commutation of the sentence or amnesty and is purely decided on individual cases, at the discretion of the authorities concerned,” eminent criminal lawyer JP Mishra said.
Dutt is serving a 42-month sentence for his role in the March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. He was convicted by a Special TADA Court for illegal possession of a pistol and an AK-47 military assault rifle during the March 1993 blasts.
