Jailed Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who came to Pune’s Yerawada Central Jail on the completion of his 14-day-long furlough Thursday, went away without surrendering.
Dutt who arrived from Mumbai to Pune by a flight, stepped out of the airport, and boarded a vehicle to go and surrender to the jail authorities.
However, after more than a couple of hours of staying around the jail premises, he turned away from there and was expected to return home to Mumbai late Thursday.
The ostensible reason was that a government official had said that it was not necessary for him to go back to jail till a decision was taken on his Dec 27, 2014, application for extension of his furlough.
Dutt’s lawyer Subhash Jadhav told media persons that as a law abiding citizen, Dutt had returned to jail, but senior prison officials said he need not surrender till his application for extension was pending.
