Generally, on Thursdays and Fridays, all eyes are set on the week’s releases. This Thursday though, will see and witness a different kind of ‘release’… that of Sanjay Dutt. After spending as many as 5 years at Yerawada Central Prison, Sanjay Dutt will walk a free man tomorrow.
Readers may recall that, Sanjay Dutt was imprisoned at Yerawada Central Prison, after having been found guilty under the ‘Arms Act’ for illegal possession and destruction of an AK-56 rifle. While in jail, he was termed as a ‘semi-skilled worker’ (with a daily earning of Rs. 50), through which he earned a total sum of Rs. 38,000 over the five-year prison term. But, since the fact remains that most of the money was used for the day to day usage items, he will be taking home a much smaller amount when he is released. Which means, at the time of his release, Sanjay Dutt will be taking home Rs. 450 with him.
While Sanjay Dutt will be received by his wife Maanyata, sister Priya Dutt, and brother-in-law Owen Roncon. Reports state that Sanjay Dutt will be traveling to Mumbai by a chartered flight after his release from Yerwada jail tomorrow, to avoid media glare and traffic jams on Mumbai Pune expressway.
And after returning to Mumbai, he is likely to visit his mother (the late) Nargis’ grave at the Bada Kabrastan in Marine Lines, which will be followed by visiting Siddhivinayak Temple in order to thank God.
