Sanjay Dutt
New Delhi, April 17: Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt is heaving a sigh of relief as he has got an extension to surrender. The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave the actor another 4 weeks to surrender in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Dutt was to surrender on Thursday April 18. Although he had requested for 6 months time, the Supreme Court has granted him only 4 weeks on 'humanitarian grounds'.

In his plea, Sanjay Dutt has requested the court to grant him more time to surrender in order to complete his films as huge money has been invested by the producers in these projects.

Dutt, 53, was sentenced to five years in jail by the apex court March 21 for illegal arms possession during the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. He was told to surrender by April 18. The actor has already undergone one-and-half years of imprisonment and, according to the apex court order, he has to undergo the remaining three-and half years of the sentence.
