Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will be released from jail on February 27, reported Times of India.
The 56-year-old actor will be walking free a few days ahead of his official date of release – a reprieve granted for good behaviour, sources say.
Dutt has been serving a five-year sentence for his involvement in the 1993 Mumbai blasts that killed 257 people and injured hundreds.
According to Indian Express, Dutt was jailed in 1996 and spent 18 months behind bars before walking out on bail. While he was cleared of conspiracy charges in 2007, he was found guilty of illegal possession of an AK-56 rifle and a pistol. In 2013, the Supreme Court sentenced him to five years in prison for the crime.
Dutt has been completing the remaining prison term of 42 months at Yerwada Jail. His official jail term ends in November 2016, according to Times of India. However, Dutt is being given remission as per the jail manual after clearance from the Home department, a senior official said.
