Sanjay Dutt to go to jail on May 15 – SC rejects plea!

The actor moved the Supreme Court for more time to surrender, but the review plea has been turned down

UPDATE: The Supreme Court today rejected Sanjay Dutt’s review plea of its March 21 judgement. The actor was sentenced to five years imprisonment in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, of which he had already served one-and-a-half years. He was convicted under the Arms Act for possession of weapons during the blasts, including an AK-56 rifle. Following today’s verdict, the Bollywood actor will have to surrender by May 15, 2013. The Court found no merit in similar pleas of six other convicts in the case. Watch this space for more updates.

Earlier story: We seriously wondered if Sanjay Dutt will be satisfied with the Supreme Court verdict granting him four weeks time to surrender before the Mumbai police or will he keep fighting his battle to get complete relief in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case. And looks like we were right! The latest we hear is that Dutt has moved the Supreme Court once again by way of a review petition against its March 21 judgment sentencing the actor to five years imprisonment.

From what we hear, a team of Delhi-based lawyers prepared and filed the petition last Friday which may be heard next week before the same bench of justices – P Sathasivam and BS Chauhan. The Munnabhai actor was held guilty under the Arms Act for possessing an automatic rifle, but was acquitted under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act – TADA. If Dutt’s the plea is dismissed this time around, he can file a curative petition.

While granting Sanjay a four-week extension, the Supreme Court had made it clear that it would grant him no further time. So what’s in store for Dutt, his fate and his cat and mouse game with the judiciary! Watch this space for updates.
