Maharashtra Government on Thursday told the Bombay High Court to send back Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt back to jail if parole rules were flouted leading to the early release of the actor.

Earlier in June, Bombay HC asked Maharashtra Government to justify the decision of his early release in the 1993 serial blasts case.

Sanjay Dutt, who was sentenced to five years in jail for possessing armed which were part of the consignment used in the 1993 blasts, was let out of Pune’s Yerwada jail in February 2016, eight months early on the ground of good conduct.

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government had submitted a report to the Bombay high court on July 17 saying Dutt was granted parole on account of his “good behaviour, discipline and participation in various institutional activities such as physical training, educational programmes and for performing the allotted work”.

Sanjay Dutt will be next seen in Omung Kumar’s ‘Bhoomi’ which will mark his comeback in Bollywood. ‘3 Idiots’ fame director Rajkumar Hirani is making a  biopic on him with actor Ranbir Kapoor playing the role of Sanjay Dutt.
