PUNE: Sanjay Dutt has been granted 14 days furlough on medical reasons.
The Bollywood actor is serving time in Yerawada jail after being convicted of possessing illegal arms supplied by perpetrators of the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
Reportedly, Sanjay Dutt had applied for a 14 day furlough recently because of his leg ailment and also other health concerns including high blood pressure.
Before applying for parole, Sanjay Dutt had applied for a 30 day furlough which the Pune police had rejected.
A furlough differs from a parole as the latter is granted by the court and the former is a leave of absence from prison granted by jail authorities.
