Manyata Dutt Diagnosed With Tumor in Liver, Says Doctor

As a massive controversy broke out over granting parole to actor Sanjay Dutt on the ground of his wife Manyata's ill health, a doctor who examined her has said she has been diagnosed with a tumor in the liver and a suspected heart ailment.

"Manyata has a tumor in the liver. She had chest pain and has lost ten kilos in 15-20 days. We have advised her to undergo certain tests for heart ailment. Once the tests are done then we can decide whether surgery is required or not," Dr Ajay Chaughule told.

Chaughule, a senior heart and cardio thoracic surgeon and heart and lung transplant surgeon at Global Hospital, said she had visited him around a week ago and has been prescribed some medicines.

The doctor said Manyata had earlier gone to Lilavati hospital where she was advised to undergo angiography to ascertain the condition of her heart after which she decided to take a second opinion from Chaughule.

Dutt, who is undergoing the remainder of his five-year jail term at Yerawada Central Jail in Pune in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, was yesterday granted a parole for 30 days on the recommendation of the prison administration. He is, however, yet to be released.

Newspapers this morning had photographs of Manyata purportedly attending the screening of a film as also a celebrity birthday party, raising doubts about Dutt's claim regarding her illness.

The problem is that the rich and powerful have made illness of self or someone from their family as the most convenient excuse for getting out of jail. As for generosity of spirit, think of the 80+ year old woman who has to suffer a far more rigirous prison sentence for storing weapons for a day (which she did not even know about) compared to Sanjay Dutt who was given a far more lenient sentence. The generosity of spirit argument unfortunately is only again bandied about when the rich and powerful are arrested. When the poor get arrested or beaten about then I dont know why people dont talk of generosity.

A certain generosity of spirit would greatly elevate the public discourse.

These guys are making a mockery of the judicial system. Making a social pariah out of Sanjay Dutt and family is the only way to teach them a lesson. Boycott all movies and shows starring him and dont vote for Priya Dutt.
