The Yerwada prison officials in Pune have started making preparations to keep Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt in their custody, considering the fact that he had earlier served part of his sentence in the same prison.

The Supreme Court has set Thursday as the deadline for the actor’s surrender.

A prison official said a separate cell was being readied for the actor at Yerwada.

Keeping in mind the incident when a guard had to face action for shaking hands with Dutt during his earlier stay at Yerwada, the jail authorities have instructed everyone to follow a “certain code”.

When contacted inspector general of prisons (west region) Rajendra Dhamne, under whose jurisdiction the Yerwada jail falls, said he had received no order about Dutt being shifted there.
