Protests outside Yerawada Jail over Sanjay Dutt's parole

Actor Sanjay Dutt who has been lodged in Yerawada Jail for illegal possession of firearms has been once again granted bail, and this time it is to take care of his apparently sick wife Manyata Dutt.


Republican Party of India (RPI) activists on Saturday staged protests outside the Yerawada Jail in Pune, Maharashtra, against the release of actor. Earlier too in October the actor was given a month long furlough on medical grounds and now for his wife.

Advocate Abha Singh said, “Old Zaibunissa Kazi and Sanjay Dutt went to jail together. Yet, she has not been granted parole, but he (Dutt) has been granted parole repeatedly.”

Protests are taking place on social networks too, such as Twitter.
