Petition filed in Bombay High Court against early release of Sanjay Dutt

Mumbai, Jan 8: A petition filed in the Bombay High Court on Friday sought to restrain Maharashtra government from releasing Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, sentenced to five years in jail in the 1993 bomb blasts case, before the end of his prison term.

The government has allowed remission of the actor's sentence by 18 months.

Pradeep Bhalekar filed the petition which alleges that Mr Dutt is getting a favour and there are 27,740 others prisoners in the state who deserve to be released on the same ground.

The petition would come up for hearing next week.

The petition also levels an allegation against a senior prison official that he favoured Mr Dutt and demands an inquiry into the official's assets.
