Pune: Sanjay Dutt might have won several hearts with his gandhigiri act in ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’, but the jail authroities at Yerwada at Pune seem to have forgotten his noble on-screen gestures.
The jail authorities at Yerwada jail have filed a plea opposing giving home-cooked food for Sanjay Dutt. It has just been six days since Sanjay Dutt, who is serving his remainder sentence for the 1993 Mumbai blasts, was brought to Pune’s Yerwada jail.
The actor has been given special permission from the Supreme Court, to allow home-cooked food for a month. Authorities at Yerwada jail seem to be ignorant of the permission granted to Sanjay Dutt.
They also say that according to the prison manual only trials having medical issues can avail the facility. Sanjay Dutt is a convict and cannot avail the privilege.
Jail superintendent Yogesh Desai has filed the plea. It states that there is no provision in the prison manual to provide such facility to convicts or undertrial prisoners.
The jail authorities also confirm, that they are aware of the special permission given to the 53-year old Sanjay Dutt and keeping the prison manual’s rules in mind, have denied the actor home food.
It’s now left to the court to decide on the action after listening to the prosecution and Sanjay Dutt.
If Sanjay Dutt is denied home-cooked food, there is an option to purchase biscuits and fruits from the jail canteen.
Sanjay Dutt surely seems to be having the toughest time of his life. Well, may be some ‘jadoo ki jhappis’ for the actor will help release tension. If not just some good home food.
