New Delhi:

Versatile actor Sanjay Dutt, who is serving a jail term in an armed case at Pune’s Yarwada jail is likely to walk free on February 27th. Sources have told News Nation that Sanjay’s jail term has been reduced and the actor is all set to walk to free soon.

Sanjay who has been released on pay roles many time by the Maharashtra government had returned two day late after his last release on furlough.

Sanjay will walk free probably on last week of month. The Minister for state (home) Ranjit Patil has signed the file allowing Dutt's release, without penalising him for reporting late from his furlough in January 2015.

Earlier in January 2015, Yerawada prison had announced extension of Dutt's sentence by four days for reporting late from his furlough. Later, however, it was found that the lapse was on the part of jail authorities that delayed the decision on extension of his furlough.

Dutt was awarded a five-year sentence by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of weapons in a case linked to the 1993 serial blasts that killed 257 people in Mumbai.
