A group of activists, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), protested right outside the residence of Sanjay Dutt here on Thursday over the recent parole which was granted to the actor by the court.
The activist were seen shouting slogans against Sanjay Dutt and demanded that the month long parole which is granted to the actor be cancelled immediately and that, he should be sent back to Pune’s Yerawada Central Jail, said ABVP city secretary Yadunath Deshpande.
He said it was surprising how a person convicted for big offences could be given parole twice in two months.
Deshpande alleged that the grounds of ill-health of Dutt’s wife Manyata was not convincing as she was seen attending late-night film parties.
The Mumbai Police which has been deployed heavy security outside Dutt’s residency arrested around 15 activists which also included ABVP national secretary Ashish Chauhan, but later released them.
Despite repeated pleas by the demonstrators, Dutt refused to come out and meet them or interact with media persons.
Dutt was granted a month-long parole last week – the second in two months – to care for his wife who is reportedly suffering from heart and liver ailments.
Is it right from the govt’s side to grant the actor a parole 2 times in a span of one month? What do you say?
