A jail official has revealed that the actor, convicted in the Mumbai blasts case, refused to wear the prison uniform when he was initially sent to the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai before being moved to Pune’s Yerwada prison.
“He was not willing to wear prison uniform during his initial stay at the Arthur road prison. He, however, complied after being told in stern words,” said Deputy Inspector General, Prisons (jail administration) Swati Sathe.
Asked to describe Mr Dutt’s routine at the Pune prison where he spent most of his five year sentence under the Arms Act, Ms Sathe said he followed the same drill meant for other prisoners.
“This meant getting up at 5.30 am, offering morning prayers, exercise, tea, breakfast, and then work cut out for the day. While other prisoners went to the work shed to undertake their prescribed work, Mr Dutt, assigned cane work and making of paper bags, did it in his own cell for security considerations,” she added.
The officer said Mr Dutt entertained other prisoners by playing radio jockey in jail.
The 56-year-old actor served 42 months in Yerwada as a part of his five-year sentence in the bomb blasts case.
He had served 18 months in jail before. In May 2013 he surrendered to serve the rest of his sentence.
Sanjay Dutt who served 42 months in Yerawada as a part of his five-year sentence in the bomb blasts case has availed remission for the same and is out today.
Who would understand Sanjay Dutt’s happiness better than his friend Salman Khan!
Salman Khan who always stood with Sanjay Dutt in his good and bad times has made arrangements for a grand welcome of ‘Munna Bhai’ aka Sanjay in attendance of close family and friends at his Panvel farmhouse.
Post his day long schedule sanjay Dutt will head for Salman’s Panvel farmhouse with his family. Salman made sure that all the media and other intrusions stay away.
The Dabangg actor will spend some quality time with sanjay before he leaves to Haryana for the next shoot schedule of ‘Sultan.’
Well not just that, Salman has even sent four bodyguards to the Mumbai airport to escort Sanjay the whole day.
While 2016 is going to see a string of biopics on many personalities starting from a brave civilian like Neerja to sports personalities like Azhar and Dhoni, a film on popular Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has been in the offing for quite some time now. It was only recently that Rajkumar Hirani revealed the details about the film and now we hear that Sanjay Dutt too will be seen in a cameo in the film.
The film was subjected to several speculations ever since the inception but it was only a few months ago, when Rajkumar Hirani decided to break the silence on the film’s plot and mentioned that he has also received a green signal from Sanjay Dutt too for the biopic. He also announced that Ranbir Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Bollywood’s ‘Khalnayak’ in the film and now we hear that Sanjay too will do a cameo appearance in the film. However, neither the filmmaker nor Ranbir ever mentioned about the same and the details of the special appearance is still under wraps.
Sanjay Dutt, now after serving his sentence, is out of jail and will resume work soon. Along with focusing on his production house which was handled by his wife during his absence, we hear that the actor is also considering signing on a few films.
The court accepted Dutt’s self protection argument but never asked how this logic can possibly apply to hand grenades which too the star procured and kept at his home in Mumbai’s Pali Hill.
Let’s take other facts and these are all culled from court records and testimonies on oath: Dutt was waiting at his residence for the consignment of arms to arrive. It came hidden in the frame of a car. Dutt provided the tools to prise out the hidden weapons and told his guard to stand at a different location from where the car was not visible.
Then, of course, there were phone records to prove he had indeed been in conversation with Anees Ibrahim and importantly, the disclosure came from Dutt himself.
So, there were a few people including Baba Mussa Chauhan and Magnum video owner Samir Hingora who went to Dutt’s house to deliver the consignment of arms. Similarly, there were others like Manzoor Ahmed whose car was used to bring back the weapons from Dutt’s residence. Also, there was an old woman by the name of Zaibunissa Kazi who kept the consignment in a bag in her house for a few days.
Each of them – Chauhan, Hingora, Ahmed and Kazi – were convicted under TADA. Ironically, Sanjay Dutt, the man at the centre, who received the consignment and then kept an AK and then admittedly destroyed it, was sentenced under the Arms Act.
Zaibunissa, at best a storer of weapons unlike Dutt, an active seeker of prohibitive assault rifles, is still rotting in an unknown cell in an unknown prison. Dutt, however, is back, as Munna Bhai.
