Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt [Images], who was granted bail by the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, will be released from Yerawada jail in Pune only after the jail authorities receive the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act court order.
A top jail official told PTI that the apex court order granting bail to Dutt, who has been sentenced to six years imprisonment under Arms Act, would be routed through the special TADA court in Mumbai, as was done earlier when he was granted interim bail.
The entire process could spill over to Wednesday evening, by which time Dutt's lawyer is expected to come to the jail with necessary legal documents, he added.
