Posted on Mar 22 2014 | IANS
Pune, March 22 : Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, Saturday evening returned to the Yerawada Central Jail here after his parole ended after 90 days, officials said.
The 53-year-old Dutt was released on a month-long parole Dec 21 last year on the grounds of his wife Maanyata's illness.
Later, the parole was extended by a month till Feb 21 and then again till March 21, inviting a barrage of criticism from various quarters over the repeated parole granted to him.
Prior to the three paroles, Dutt was granted a fortnight's furlough, which was extended by another fortnight in October on grounds of his own illness.
The actor's 37-year-old wife Maanyata was hospitalised in January after she complained of lung complications.
A convict in the March 1993 Mumbai blasts, Dutt is serving the remainder of his five-year imprisonment at Yerawada since May 2013.
