The apex court upheld the TADA court's sentence which, however, has been reduced from six-year-imprisonment to five-year-imprisonment.
Citing few tweets on Twitter, it seems that the Bollywood actor, who was found guilty in Arms Act, has become a Zero from a Hero.
While many people were impressed with the Supreme Court's verdict, many expressed their concern for Sanju Baba's family members. Here are some tweets which reveal how part of India think about Sanjay Dutt:
