Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was on Wednesday shifted to high security Yerawada jail in Pune from Mumbai, a jail official said.

“Sanjay Dutt was escorted to Pune jail at about 4 am from Mumbai. There were three police vans that took him to the Pune jail,” the official said.

He was secretly shifted to the Pune jail early in the morning due to security reasons and to avoid media glare, the official said.

The actor was earlier lodged in the ‘anda’ cell after he was brought to the Arthur Road jail on May 16 following his surrender before the expiry of the Supreme Court-set deadline to serve his remaining sentence in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
