Sanjay Dutt returned to Yerwada Jail in Pune earlier this year, after his extended parole had come to an end. While sections of the public felt the actor was being given special treatment by being allowed such a long parole, his family feel he is being given anything but special treatment. Namrata Dutt seems to be extremely concerned about her brother۪s health and feels he is being neglected.
He۪s a survivor and will adapt to any situation even eating bajra rotis and wild spinach. But when you۪re in bad health, things are not easy. He۪s suffering from sciatica, which makes it difficult to sleep on a chatai (mat). He needs physiotherapy. He also has deep vein thrombosis (clots in the vein) on his legs. He needs to have another Doppler test done. His cholesterol and triglycerides are high. Plus, he has fatty liver and borderline sugar. He needs a special diet. When he was out on parole this year, he was with Maanayata at the hospital day and night. He neglected his check-ups, Namrata told Filmfare.
The actor۪s sister went on to express her fear of what neglecting her brother۪s health may lead to. She said, They are taking a huge risk with his health. God forbid if they neglect it_ I don۪t know how I will react. I don۪t know whether I should be quoting the case of Rajan Pillai (the late industrialist, who was suffering from liver cirrhosis died in judicial custody in 1995 reportedly due to medical negligence).
Sanjay Dutt is serving a 5-year jail sentence for illegal possession of firearms which were linked to the Mumbai blasts of 1993.
