Sanjay Dutt: India Bollywood actor released from jail


Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt has been released from a prison in the western Indian city of Pune.

Dutt, 56, was sentenced for firearms offences linked to the 1993 Mumbai blasts which killed 257 people and injured 713.

He was convicted of buying firearms from the bombers but said the weapons were necessary in order to defend his family during the Hindu-Muslim rioting.

The actor was moved to the Pune jail in 2013 to finish his five-year jail term.
