The Sanjay Dutt saga never seems to end. After Sanjay Dutt’s sentencing, a lot of eminent people wanted the Supreme Court to grant him mercy, but Sanjay boldly stated that he won’t appeal for any pardon whatsoever. However, he now changed his mind completely and has filed a review on his case.
Sanjay Dutt has already appealed for 6 months time to surrender, but the Supreme Court has given him only 4 weeks on the grounds of some charity work done by him and also due to some good conduct. He now has to yield himself to the police by 15th May. Sanjay has now used these same humanity aspects and appealed for the review which is most likely to be overruled by the Supreme Court.
According to the Supreme Court the case in which Sanjay Dutt is involved is a very serious one. Being a player who may have had a role in the Bombay blasts in 1993, Sanjay’s review might not be accepted. It doesn’t help that Sanjay Dutt also possessed some banned weapons and got caught trying to dispose of an A.K 47 rifle in 2006.
These criminal acts were under scrutiny and in the glare of the media for years. Sanjay was sentenced to jail for 5 years in 2006, but he served 18 months and came out on bail by appealing to the Supreme Court. Looks like Sanjay is again going to have to fight this one out, but with fewer chances of success. Let’s hope for whatever is best for the country.
