Mumbai, August 2
Actor Sanjay Dutt was today shifted from Arthur Road Jail here to Yerwada Jail near Pune after he withdrew his application to be kept in a prison in this city.

Dutt, given a six-year jail term in the 1993 blasts case on Tuesday, withdrew his plea in the special TADA court of Judge P.D. Kode after the authorities submitted a report that cited several reasons why he could not be kept at Arthur Road Jail, which is meant only for persons facing trial.

The star was escorted by policemen from here to Yerwada Jail in the evening.

Earlier today, when Dutt’s application came up in the TADA court, special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said the report cited the need to provide security to the star and other reasons why he could not be kept in the central Mumbai jail. — PTI
