New Delhi, Nov 2 (ANI): The Supreme Court will today hear the bail plea of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who has been sentenced to six years of rigorous imprisonment by a TADA Court under the Arms Act.

Dutt had approached the apex court following his conviction for illegally keeping arms - an AK 56 rifle and a pistol, relating to the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

The actor is presently housed in Yerwada Jail in Pune after he surrendered before a TADA court on October 22.

Dutt"s lawyer argued that the apex court should grant him bail on the grounds of his conduct, and that he has never broken law in the past one decade since he was first granted bail in connection with the case.

Two months earlier, Dutt had received an interim bail from the apex court as he had not received a copy of his judgement.

Dutt has already spent nearly 16 months in prison before his release on bail in 1996.
