Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has sought further extension of his parole to nurse his wife Maanyata, who is recovering after surgery, police said here Sunday.
Dutt, currently out on parole since Dec 21, 2013, was due to return to jail Jan 21, but he sought and was given extension of another month (till Feb 21) in his parole.
Now, he has applied for another month-long extension.
Dutt has written to the Pune divisional commissioner, who has directed the Khar Police in Mumbai to verify the reasons for parole extension cited in the application, a police official said. The verification report is expected in the next few days.
An accused in the March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, Dutt is serving the remaining 42 months of his five year prison sentence.
A few months ago, Maanyata was diagnosed as suffering from multiple heart and liver ailments. She was admitted to Global Hospital, Parel last month and underwent surgery. – IANS
