PUNE: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, a convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, was back to his prison cell at Yerawada jail this evening on expiry of his 30-day parole.

He had been out on parole since August 27 this year. "He returned to the jail this evening after expiry of his 30-day parole," jailer Milind Kurlekar told PTI. The actor's frequent application seeking parole and furlough have been criticised by various quarters including social and political organisations.

The 56-year-old actor is currently serving his five-year jail term after conviction in the 1993 bomb blasts case. He was convicted in 2007 by a special TADA court under Arms Act for illegal possession of arms and sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment.

He had spent 18 months in jail in 1996 after his arrest. In May 2013, the actor surrendered after the Supreme

Court upheld his conviction and sentence. The actor has since then been lodged in the Yerwada jail.
