Sanjay Dutt has sought another extension of his parole to nurse his wife Maanyata, who is recovering after surgery, police said on Sunday.
Dutt, currently out on parole since December 21, 2013, was due to return to jail on January 21, but he was given a parole extension of another month, until February 21.
Now, he has applied for another month-long extension.
Dutt has written to the Pune divisional commissioner, who has directed the Khar Police in Mumbai to verify the reasons for his parole extension cited in the application, a police official said. The verification report is expected in the next few days.
Dutt was found guilty of involvement in the March 1993 Mumbai serial bombings, and is serving the remaining 42 months of his five year prison sentence.
A few months ago, his wife was diagnosed as suffering from multiple heart and liver ailments. She was admitted to Global Hospital, Parel, last month and underwent surgery.
