PUNE, Feb 25 - Putting behind the torrid times since his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt today walked out a free man from the Yerawada Central Prison here after being granted remission in his five-year sentence.
A smile lit up his face as the 56-year-old actor, clad in a blue shirt and jeans, stepped out and walked briskly toward a waiting car outside the prison, waving to onlookers.
Looking in good health, he enthusiastically carried in his hands a khaki bag containing his belongings and a file that apparently contained his prison records.
A sense of dramatics crept in as he turned back and saluted the Tricolour atop the prison building and bent to touch the soil in full media glare. � PTI
