Bombay HC questions special treatment given to prisoner Sanjay Dutt

After a public interest litigation questioned the “frequent” parole or furlough of Sanjay Dutt, the Maharashtra government on Friday said that it can justify “every single minute” of parole granted to actor Sanjay Dutt. The Bollywood actor was sentenced to five years in jail in relation to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case and was granted an early release from prison in 2016. This prompted the Bombay High Court to ask if same rules were applied to every other jail inmates.
