Why was Sanjay Dutt released early? Is it ‘Good Conduct? Really?’

The Bombay high court asked the Maharashtra administration on Monday to clarify why it discharged Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, serving a sentence over the 1993 bombings, eight months before the said time.
Sanjay, sent to jail in the year 2013 for a period of 5 years for illegitimately possessing and annihilating a rifle, was released 8 months before time into February 2016 because of what the administration stated was his “excellent behavior” in Yerwada jail.
The bench of Justice RM Savant and Justice Sadhana Jadhav asked the administration to lodge an affidavit specifying the “limitations mulled over, and the processes accompanied” in arriving at the conclusion that Dutt was worthy of mercy.
“Was the DIG prisons consulted or did the jail superintendent directly send his recommendation to the governor? Isn’t there a uniform procedure followed for all prisoners who receive good conduct reports? ” the bench stated.
“Also, how did the authorities assess that Dutt’s conduct was good? When did they get the time to make such assessment when he was out on parole half the time?” the bench added up.
The court was hearing a petition lodged by objector Pradeep Bhalekar, challenging the actor’s untimely release and inquiring the recurrent paroles allotted to him whilst Dutt was in lockup.
Bhalekar’s advocate Nitin Satpude stated that there are a number of offenders who secure a superior behavior report from jail agencies, however, are not allowed diminution or before time release.
As per the petition, approximately 400 prisoners crosswise the state secured excellent behavior reports.
The state administration told the court that prison authorities approved an early release for inmates who exhibit very good behavior whilst in prison. But, it stated that the common practice was to “offer them an allowance of 114 days”, which comes to around three-and-a-half months. “We just wish to comprehend your verdict making procedure,” the court said in response.
Dutt was serving a five-year sentence in Yerawada central jail in the city of Pune for illegal ownership and annihilation of an AK-56 rifle in the year 1993 serial explosion case.
Even whilst he was serving the prison term, Sanjay had been out of jail for around 6 months on recurrent furlough leaves and parole.
