Actor Sanjay Dutt was released from Pune’s Yerwada jail today after serving 42 months in prison, following his conviction in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

A petition was filed in the Bombay High Court yesterday challenging Sanjay Dutt’s early release, alleging that the actor was getting preferential treatment.
