Sanjay Dutt gets another month's parole extension

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, currently out on parole, got an extension of the parole due to his wife Manyata's illness, here Monday. 

Dutt, who secured parole Dec 21 from Pune's Yerawada Central Jail (YCJ), was expected to return to the jail after completing his one month leave-from-prison today. 

He had recently submitted an application seeking extension of parole to the Pune divisional commissioner on account of Manyata's worsening health condition. 

Manyata is reported to be suffering from multiple ailments of the heart and liver and was admitted to Global Hospital in Parel, south-central Mumbai, over a week ago for treatment. 

Prior to this, Dutt had been released on a fortnight long furlough, which was extended by another fortnight in Oct 2013. 

A convict in the March 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case, Dutt had surrendered before a Mumbai special court in May 2013 after his conviction was confirmed by the Supreme Court. 

Since he had already served 18 months of his five-year sentence, Dutt returned to YCJ to serve the remaining 42 months of his conviction for illegal possession of weapons in 1993.

Ekta Kapoor's session interrupted at Jaipur lit fest

Movie and television producer Ekta Kapoor's session at the Jaipur Literature Festival was interrupted Monday when members of Rajput Karni Sena started shouting slogans against her for distorting facts and showing Rajputs in bad light in her TV show "Jodha Akbar". 

As soon as her session "Each Other Stories" started, around 10-12 protesters barged in and started shouting "Ekta wapis jao (Go back, Ekta)". 

This lasted for a minute and during that period the 38-year-old looked unperturbed and told the audience: "This will turn into a 'Jodha Akbar' discussion if I don't continue. It is nothing but background music for me." 

According to an official release, police made a swift move and the protesters were moved away from the venue allowing Ekta to resume the session. 

"The festival believes in freedom of expression and supports respectful and responsible debate between all participants and guests," said the festival director Sanjoy Roy. 

"We thank the Jaipur police for their swift action in maintaining safety at all times, and allowing the event to resume within a minute," he added. 

"Jodha Akbar", which went on air on Zee TV last June, has been courting controversies ever since it started.
