Additional Director General (ADG) Prisons, Meeran Borwankar, confirmed the development.

Dutt, undergoing remainder of his five-year jail term for possessing illegal firearms, part of a cache of weapons meant to be used during the 1993 blasts, was granted parole earlier on December 6.
The actor had applied for parole on earlier this month citing ill-health of his wife Manyata.

However, photographs in the media of Manyata purportedly attending the screening of a film and also a celebrity birthday party, had raised questions about Dutt's claim regarding her illness.

A major controversy had erupted over granting parole to Dutt for the second time in little over a month forcing the Maharashtra government to order an inquiry.
Home Minister R R Patil had ordered the inquiry to ascertain the basis for granting parole to the film star after allegations of favouritism and protests outside Yerwada jail intensified.
Earlier, the actor had availed 15 days leave of furlough, extending it further by another fortnight in October on medical grounds. Dutt was shifted to the central prison in Pune from Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail in May this year.
