Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was back in Yerwada Jail today after his extended parole, which invited a lot of criticism, came to an end.

Dutt was released on parole on December 21 last year and was granted extension two times. The parole was sought on the grounds of his wife Manyata's illness.

Dutt is serving out a five-year sentence of rigorous imprisonment for illegal possession and destruction of an AK-56 rifle before the March 12, 1993 Mumbai blasts.

The actor had surrendered before the TADA court in May last year after the Apex court upheld his conviction under the Arms Act.

Earlier, the actor had also availed of 15 days leave of furlough, then further extending it by a fortnight in October last year on medical grounds. He had since sought two parole extensions which now come to an end.

The actor had faced protests outside his home and jail over his parole requests.
