New Delhi, Jul 22: After 19 years of the horrible Mumbai serial blasts in 1993, the Supreme Court on Friday, Jul 22 allowed Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who was convicted for the terror act in the dream city, to visit abroad.

The court permitted Dutt to go abroad till Jan 10, 2012. The actor also has been asked to handover his passport to the court within a week of his return.

Earlier, the court had rubbished a petition against Dutt seeking cancellation of bail bestowed on the Bollywood actor.

A film producer, Shakeel Noorani, who reportedly have been engaged in some financial spat with the actor, had filed an FIR requesting dismissal of Sanjay Dutt's bail which was granted to him (Dutt) in 2007.

Noorani earlier had claimed, "My life is being threatened by the underworld (allegedly on the behest of Dutt) and I have already filed an FIR in the case."

However, criticising Noorani's move, the apex court pronounced, "You (Noorani) cannot use this court to solve your financial disputes in a criminal case," and also added, "How is the producer involved in this (Mumbai blast) criminal case? You file an FIR. We are dismissing your petition."

Sanjay Dutt was acquitted in the Mumbai blast case by a TADA court but had held in the Arms Act for possessing ammunition and weapon at his residence. Dutt has already spent six year in prison over his role in the 1993 blast.
