Sanjay Dutt is given Justice Separately : Congress

Congress today took a swipe at the BJP-led Maharashtra government over early release of Sanjay Dutt from jail, saying the actor was given a separate justice because he is a celebrity and not a common man. The Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said, 'Actor was many time released on Parole. Thousands convicts with such good behaviour are in the jail right now. Will Government bring justice to them?' The government used the special rights to release Dutt on parole several times when he was serving the jail term in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. Patil said, 'Law is equal for everyone. but Sanjay Dutt is a celebrity, he was given Justice separately and Government this act is objectionable.' He said that around 50 lakhs cases are pending in the court, Government should take step to finish such cases.
