Dutt was taken into custody immediately and will be kept in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail temporarily and will be taken to Pune’s Pune’s Yerwada jail on Monday evening.

On Saturday, the actor got a minor reprieve as he did not receive his judgment copy, because it was not ready then.

However, the court had handed over the 4,340-page judgment to 13 convicts that day, including 10 who have been awarded the death sentence.

Dutt, who was sentenced to six-year rigorous imprisonment on July 31, had spent a few weeks in Pune’s Yeravada jail before being granted interim bail by the Supreme Court.
