Mumbai, Oct 19: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt and few others on bail, who have been convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, will have to appear before the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act Court tomorrow to receive copies of the judgement. After receiving the copies, Dutt and the others will have to surrender before the authorities as per the direction of the Apex Court which granted them interim bail two months back on the ground that they had not been furnished copies of the final judgement.
However, according to sources, the court is not likely to hand over the copies tomorrow itself as the same are not ready yet.
The court was scheduled to hand over copies of the judgement from October 18. But, according to sources, only 70 per cent of the work has been completed and few more days would be required to complete the work. This implies further relief to Dutt and the others.
Apart from Dutt, the others out on bail include three brothers and sister-in-law of prime absconding accused Tiger Memon. Two women convicts -- Zaibunissa Kazi and Mobina Baya Bhiwandiwala are also out on bail.
Sources said that due to the delay, the convicts who had been summoned prior to Dutt, have now been asked to appear before the court on October 24. But, the date for Dutt's appearance has not yet been rescheduled.
It may be recalled that designated TADA judge P D Kode had convicted 100 accused for their role in the Mumbai serial blasts case which rocked the metropolis on March 12, 1993, in which 257 people were killed and 715 others injured and property worth crores of rupees were damaged.
