‘Munna Bhai’ Sanjay Dutt to get out of jail on Thursday

Pune/Nagpur: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is all set to be released from the Yerawada Central Jail in Pune, Maharashtra on Thursday morning, an official source said on Monday.

The celebrity prisoner will be released after serving the remainder of his five-year sentence for possession of illegal arms in the 12 March, 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case.

Dutt is scheduled to step out of jail around 9 am on 25 February and will be received by his wife Manyata, children and other family members.

The jail authorities have rejected a request for a small ‘welcome ceremony’ planned by the family on security grounds, in view of a large number of the actor’s fans and media contingent expected there, said the official requesting anonymity.
