Mumbai, Jan 6: Speculation was rife yet again on Wednesday over the purported date of release of incarcerated Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt from the Yerawada Central Jail in Pune. While Dutt’s lawyer Hitesh Jain claimed the actor will walk free on February 27, Maharashtra’s Minister of State for Home Ranjit Patil said “no decision has been taken in the matter so far”.

“It is wrong to say his jail term has been reduced. Sanjay Dutt is coming out after completing his sentance and his release term has not been reduced or increased. His release date was set as February 27 before itself,” Jain told IANS.

This was contrary to what Patil and Additiol Director General of Police B.K. Upadhyay had to say. “The government has not taken any decision to reduce his sentence or give remission,” Patil told media persons, reacting to reports that Dutt’s release was imminent by February-end. (ians)
